- Samuel Langley was a renowned scientist and inventor in the US during the 1880s. He also tried his hand at inventing a piloted heavier-than-air aircraft. In 1898, he managed to get funding from his employer, the renowned Smithsonian Institute, and the US government. He, along with his team of eminent aviation experts, famously developed the prototype named Aerodrome. The prototype failed and Langley abandoned the project, although his attempts at unmanned flight with model planes were successful.
