The Wright Brothers (Kids Can Read 3)

Wilbur Wright (1867-1912) and Orville Wright (1871-1948) realized their dream of flight when they flew their airplane, the Flyer, at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, in 1903. Their invention, the airplane, is one of the most important machines ever created. Coloured illustrations and quick facts about the duo are included.
