Wright Brothers Story
Wilbur Wright was born in April 1867 and died in May 1912 while Orville Wright was born in 1871 and died in January 1948. They are known as Wright Brothers. They were sons of a minister. There were a lot of books in their house, and they were encouraged to ask questions and find out about whatever they thought was interesting.
By the 1890s, the Wrights were interested in flight, especially the gliders of Otto Lilienthal. In 1892, they opened the Wright Cycle Shop in Dayton. They started making airplanes in their bicycle shop.
In 1899, Wilbur invented a simple . system called “wing-wraping” that twisted or “warped” the wings of a glider, causing it to roll left or right. The Wright Brothers first produced glider in 1902 which made more than 700 flights. In 1903, they built a powered airplane that had a propeller and a light but powerful engine.
On December 17, 1903, Orville Wright piloted the first powered airplane that covered 120 feet and lasted 12 seconds in the Kill Devil Hills. The same day Wilbur Wright flew their “Flying Machine” 852 feet and the flight lasted for 59 seconds. In 1906 the Wrights’ Patent was granted and “flying machine” was called an aeroplane.
