The brothers were engineers and tinkerers who founded the Wright Cycle Comany in Dayton, Ohio in 1892. While the bicycle business sustained them, they began to experiment with kites, gliders and other flying machines, always with an eye to creating a powered machine that could carry a man aloft. Their first successful flight, with Orville at the controls, took place at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina on 17 December 1903. The plane covered 120 feet in about 12 seconds; a short flight, but enough to make history. Others had flown in balloons and gliders, but the Wrights' creation was the first in a manned, motor-powered, heavier-than-air craft.The magazine front cover has been mounted to white cardboard................................THIS MAGAZINE FRONT COVER--HAS BEEN SIGNED BY ORVILLE WRIGHT WITH A FOUNTAIN PEN IN BROWN TO A SMARTLY MOUNTED SIGNATURE SLIP ON THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.
