The Wright Brothers Fly
Orville was born 1867 and Dayton was born 1871. Milton Wright ,their father, brought a toy helicopter home one day. The boys loved the toy so much they began to dream of flying. When they were older they began building and testing gliders.
They became the pioneers and creators of aviation. In 1903 they made the first flight with a power driven machine. The first plane they built only stayed in the air for 12 seconds! So they did it again and it lasted 1 minute and 36 seconds.
The Wright brothers sold their first plane to the us government for $30,000. They had to use a rail to take off. The plane stayed in the air for 55 minutes and 37 seconds! The plane flew over 360 feet in the air.
They where determined to make the first plane that could fly safely for a long time. They where young, never gave up, and brave.
