The Wright Brothers Take Flight!

Flying for more than one minute Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, astonished international observers, bringing some to their knees as they witnessed the first successful flight in history on Dec. 17.

Taking place in the dunes of Kitty-Hawk, North Carolina, the flying machine ran on 25-horsepower engines with higher power to weight ratio. It took 6 men to haul and set the weight which launched the flying machine into the air.

After several years of work and various models, the brothers from Dayton, Ohio have surpassed others, internationally, who have been attempting to get such a machine to work.

What a small step in history but a big step for mankind!
