Wright Brothers Glider, Kitty Hawk, NC, 1900
This gallery offers a fascinating look at the history of flight through the camera lens of the Wright Brothers. They did a great job of documenting their earliest failures and successes.
There are ample resources to study the Wright Brothers; here, I've usually provided only the spare captions attached to the individual pictures in the collection.
These images are in the public domain, from the Collection: Glass negatives from the Papers of Wilbur and Orville Wright, housed in the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division, Washington, D.C. 20540 USA.For the full collection, click here.
