  Aviation History
The first published paper on aviation was "Sketch of a Machine for Flying in the Air" by Emanuel Swedenborg published in 1714.
Dunne's main contribution to early aviation was stability, which was a key problem with the planes designed by the Wright brothers and Samuel Cody.
Controversy in the credit for invention of the airplane has been fuelled by Pearse's and Jatho's essentially non-existant efforts to inform the popular press, by the Wrights' secrecy while their patent was prepared, by the pride of nations, and by the number of firsts made possible by the basic invention.

When the Wrights returned home in late August 1901 they were discouraged and said they doubted they would ever resume their experiments.[28] Wilbur is quoted as saying the problems of flight were still so difficult that "man would not fly for fifty years." But home, rest and a new approach changed their mind.
He gave he and his brother the credit for analyzing the cause of the instability problem in their 1901 glider without mentioning Spratt.[42] Orville wrote that it was after their 1901 gliding tests they became convinced of the need for more accurate aeronautical data.
The letter Spratt sent to the Wrights on November 21, 1901 in which he showed them his design was not in the Wright files when their papers were released for examination after Orville’s death.

 Wind Tunnel in the Aviation History Encyclopedia
Before the Wright brothers ' innovation of the wind tunnel, scientific studies of aerodynamics had been carried out using a "whirling-arm apparatus" first developed by Sir George Cayley in the 1800s.
The Wright brothers, working with Octave Chanute invented and built a simple wind tunnel in 1901 to study the effects of airflow over various shapes while developing their revolutionary Wright Flyer.
The Wright wind tunnel was used more recently to test modern low-speed fliers, such as the human-powered "Albatross".
