The Wright Brothers

Wilbur and Orville Wright, the "Wright Brothers" were born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. From an early age both of them showed an interest in flight, often sitting on the beach and observing birds as they dreamed of someday flying themselves. On December 17th, 1903, in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, the brothers conducted the first flight of heavier than air, powered aircraft in history. This first flight of the "Wright Flyer" was at an altitude of 12 ft and had a distance of 120ft.
