Season 1 Episode 4 The History Channel January 28, 2017

When Orville and Wilbur Wright build and fly the world's first airplane, there's only one problem: No one believes them.

During that time, aviation pioneer Glenn Curtiss begins manufacturing and selling his own planes - and making tons of money in the process - sparking a massive patent war that threatens to destroy the entire aviation industry before it even gets off the ground.
