First powered flight

Stringfellow's grave Chard

Came across negs of a visit we spent in Chard. Took a long time but we finally found the grave.

Copy of the plane 
It was driven by steam and was only a model but never-the-less it WAS the first aeroplane to fly under its own power.

Move over Wright brothers.
