Dave reports on how the super secretive Wright brothers went from humble bike shop owners to the inventors of the first controlled airplane. But then they get paranoid about people stealing their ideas and sue the hell out of everyone, especially bad boy Glenn Curtiss - a chapter in history known as 'The Wright Brothers Patent War'. The Wrights may win the first battle, but who will win the war?
