Orville Wright and Wilbur Wright – Inventors of the First Engined Airplane

The History of the Airplane
Orville Wright and Wilbur Wright – Inventors of the First Engined Airplane
Orville Wright (1871-1948) and Wilbur Wright (1867-1912) requested a patent application for a “flying machine” nine months before their successful flight in December 1903, which Orville Wright recorded in his diary. As part of the Wright Brothers’ systematic practice of photographing every prototype and test of their various flying machines, they had persuaded an attendant from a nearby lifesaving station to snap Orville Wright in full flight. The craft soared to an altitude of 10 feet, traveled 120 feet, and landed 12 seconds after takeoff. After making two longer flights that day, Orville and Wilbur Wright sent this telegram to their father, instructing him to “inform press.”
Earlier in 1900, Wilbur Wright wrote to French aviation pioneer Octave Chanute (1832-1910) and expressed the belief that “flight is possible to man…[and] I feel that it will soon cost me an increased amount of money if not my life”. More on the Wright Brothers’ invention of the airplane.

    As an agent, you have to go with. Many customers will turn to the internet.
    If you are young looking for dates or life partner then do I need to ask about a FREE initial consultation.
