Mr. Clark found the facts about the invention to be interesting and surprising, not having previously heard the account of the events that occurred in the remote North Georgia mountains in the 1870s which validate the occurrence of manned flight in the U.S. more than a quarter of a century earlier than the widely accepted date.

Upon hearing that efforts were being made to get Dyer inducted into the Georgia Museum of Aviation Hall of Fame, Clark said, “I believe he deserves a place in the museum, and I hope the effort will be successful.”
