Samuel Franklin Cody (born Cowdery) was born 150 years ago today, on 06-March-1867.  Cody was an American emigree who built and flew British Army Aeroplane Number 1 in 1908. This shows him with his wife, Maud Maria Cody. She does not look comfortable.

Cody died while testing a floatplane of his own design on 07-August-1913.
