TRUTH !!
Two Frenchmen went 5 miles in a Hot Air Balloon that was powered by a wood fire, but was not steerable.

The balloon was invented by the French. It was the first machine ever built to allow people to take to the air, and it created a great deal of excitement that would last through the next century. During this pioneering period the balloon was mostly an entertainment for thrill-seekers, but it also demonstrated potential in military and scientific applications
