Wright Flyer Project: Dreams of Flight

The first flight by the Wright brothers took place on December 17, 1903, at Kittyhawk, North Carolina. It wasn’t much of a flight, just 120 feet, but it was a groundbreaking feat. A few years ago a group of engineers met at Flabob Airport in California to analyze the characteristics of the first plane and its flight to see if they could make a replica that would fly. Watch a 12 minute movie that explains the process these men went through. Listen to interviews about how the Wright Flyer Project got started and what its successes have been.
