The Underwood Brothers


In 1907, just four years after the Wright brothers made their historic flight, the Underwood brothers from Stettler, Alberta designed an experimental machine to take to the skies that was extremely popular with both local residents and visitors. This machine didn't have an engine, and flew only when attached to a tether on the ground, on "kite" flights. Nevertheless, the Underwoods' efforts were enough to earn them a place in aviation history.  Pictured above is a replica of their creation.
