Description

Wright Brothers National Memorial: Site of the First Controlled Powered Flight tells how bicycle makers in Dayton, Ohio, launched the aviation age. After reading about the glider accident that killed Otto Lilienthal, Wilbur and Orville Wright spent four years designing flying machines in Dayton and testing them near Kitty Hawk. Maps and photos show their flying machines and living quarters on the windswept dunes of the Outer Banks where, on December 17, 1903, they made history.
