The Age of Flight begins with the Wright brothers’ first successful controlled flight near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, on Dec. 17, 1903. Learn the inspiration behind Orville and Wilbur Wright's research and success in powered flight. Pictures of the brothers and their work, as well as a reasonably detailed essay, commemorate this world-changing event. It’s interesting to find out how important pigeons were to the development of airplane wings.
