It is good that there is a replica of Dumont's 14 Bis aeroplane and that it is in Petropolis. The plane itself is OK but it is a bit matter of fact. There is a really good museum at Casa Santos Dumont which explains it's creation and more about the inventor. Do get to see this if you are in Petropolis. By doing so it puts the replica into perspective.

How the first airplane ever looks like? How big was it? Well, just go to this square and see by yourself.

The Brazilians have a way of immortalizing their heroes and this little plaza is a case in point. There, mounted on a high plinth, is a replica of the airplane used by the inventor and aviator Santos Dumont used to fly circles around the competition in Paris in the very early 1900's. The brass plaque at the base, however, says nothing about the airplane and everything about the municipal leaders responsible for the monument's sponsorship.

A mini square with a replica of the 14bis in honor of Santos Dumont.
The square is just for that. It appears that there is a tourist bus that picks up passengers at this point as well.
The bus charges 25 reais to get around the city, the city is small and can be reached on foot. Elderly people or people who don't want to walk a lot might be interesting.
