The Dawn of Aviation: The Story of the Wright Brothers

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly? Have you dreamed of having wings and taking off to soar, glide and dip with the birds? You are not the only one. Many people have wanted to leave the ground behind and join the clouds and the stars. Two such people were brothers Orville and Wilbur Wright.

These men were always looking for an idea to explore. Thinking as one, they would put their heads together and figure out how to create something new. They invented a printing press out of scrap. They designed bicycles when they were still a new fad. Finally, they turned their minds toward flight. Through lots of determination and experimentation, Orville and Wilbur created The Flyer. For a few glorious seconds, they left gravity behind and took to the skies at Kitty Hawk. It was a moment that changed their lives and the course of the world.
