The Wright Brothers' Aeroplane: how they invented it...Temporarily out of print

by the Wright Brothers Orville and Wilbur Wright.

The Wrights began their aircraft inventing not as part of a scientific institution, but as a hobby following an initial boyhood curiosity in a flying toy. They tell not only of how they discovered the necessary principles, but of applying them to a machine, and then launching themselves into the air with it. Reprinted from Century Magazine, 1908.

Photographs show little planes in the air, kites and balloons as predecessors, and the Wright Brothers. 12 pages.

ISBN-10: 0-89646-065-7. ISBN-13: 978-0-89646-065-2. Limited supply. Order #: VIST0065 paper$4.95
