WRIGHT BROTHERS AIRPLANE, ETC. TYPE A PLANE AT FORT MYER
The Wright brothers, Orville (August 19, 1871 – January 30, 1948) and Wilbur (April 16, 1867 – May 30, 1912), were two American brothers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are credited with inventing, building and flying the world's the first successful airplane. Although not the first to build and fly experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. "If we all worked on the assumption that what is accepted as true is really true, there would be little hope of advance." Orville Wright
