The Wright Brothers did not "invent the airplane". They were the first to make a powered flight.

I would say this comment was pedantic if it wasn't simply incorrect. Airplanes are by definition powered. The Wright Brothers were the first to demonstrate a working model. Ergo, they invented the airplane.

Of course, french people will probably say that Clément Ader was the true pionner but his plane was not very stable and his flight is thus questionable.

New Zealand did not gain independence in 1907. That is merely when New Zealand became a 'dominion' of Great Britain rather than a 'colony'. There was no practical change to New Zealand's position, just a change in title. http://www.nzhistory.net.nz/culture/dominion-day

Thank god. New Zealand gained independence in 1947. It became a Dominion of the British Empire in 1907, and was the last Dominion to adopt the Treaty of Westminster (1931) granting it sovereignty. I was really frustrated with this quiz for that.

The Vietnam War started in 1955 actually.

Kind of a vague clue, whether you mean the American Vietnam War, which is what is almost universally the understanding in the English language or the civil war between the proxy states of north and south or the final phase of war against the French. Most would go for the U.S.-Vietnam War 1964-1973 in English.

To be picky, technically 1918 was just the year of the armistice in WW1, the war didn't officially end until the treaty of Versailles was signed in 1919

Since everyone is being so "technical"... To be technically correct, while the Twin Towers were demolished in 2001, they were attacked twice, the first time in 1993.

Technically, World War 2 began as soon as that Treaty of Versailles was signed so we could say it was one war and ended in 1945, although it led to directly to the conflicts in Palestine so technically it's still going on. Pedantism duly noted and diagnosed.
