It all began on December 17, 1903. Orville and Wilbur Wright, brothers and best friends, were at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. They were ready to test the Flyer. With Orville at the controls, the Flyer lifted off shakily, under its own motor power, and flew for twelve seconds. Wilbur took his turn next. Soaring above the sand dunes.

The Wright Brothers had built and flown the world's first airplane. They changed the way we travel around the world.

This is their story.
