Yes. The Wright brothers weren't the only ones trying to develop an airplane, and they were far from the first to create a flying machine--George Cayley, a Briton, made a glider with "flappers" for power in the early 1800s.

  It was made with chocolate brownies and peanut butter cookies. They put extra peanut butter to make them stable. They didn't use much sugar because it would make it crumble. This was the earliest glider ever made that was edible.
