Talk:Helicopter

Confusing sentence structure -- fix recommended.[edit]

The text currently reads:

"In July 1901, Hermann Ganswindt demonstrated maiden flight of his helicopter took place in Berlin-Schöneberg, which probably was the first motor-driven flight carrying humans."

I suggest revising it for clarity:

"In July 1901, Hermann Ganswindt demonstrated the maiden flight of his helicopter in Berlin-Schöneberg. This was probably the first motor-driven flight carrying a human."

I'd make these minor revisions for clarity myself, but the article is protected.

This sentence also seems to contradict information provided in a later section in the article:

"For this reason, the flights of the Gyroplane No. 1 are considered to be the first manned flight of a helicopter, but not a free or untethered flight."

Cheers,
