    As powered flight was in its infancy, the transatlantic cable brought news reports "over the wire" from Europe to the United States in hours. These news reports shed light on the development of the large rigid airships and uncovered many amazing facts. Some of those facts include that Orville Wright rode aboard a Zeppelin prior to WWI, and one Zeppelin was captured because none of the bullets fired at it, including those of the commanding officer after the crash, would light the craft on fire.

Aeronauts began competing to be the first, the fastest, to fly the highest or fly the longest. Since their flight at Kitty Hawk, the Wrights pursued royalties on their patents. The Aero Club de France was full of aeronauts that were both rivals and collaborators.
