PRODUCT SUMMARY


Orville Wright: (1871-1948)

Wilbur Wright: (1867-1912)

For centuries, people had looked to the skies and dreamed of human flight, but it took Orville and Wilbur Wright, two bicycle mechanics from Dayton, Ohio, to turn this fantasy into reality. The Wright Brothers tells their story through reenactments, photographs and footage of the brothers themselves. Viewers will follow along as the Wrights test their ideas about flight by using simple kites, and then gliders, to finally build the very first powered airplane, appropriately dubbed "The Flyer"! Part of the Inventors of the World DVD Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.
