Wright Gliders, Airplanes & Glider?
8:30 AM - 9:45 AM
Location: Vette Theater
Presenter: Ron Blum
Travel back ~120 years to 1900 with the Wright brothers. Follow their methodical progress as they develop the first heavier than air, powered airplane through the 1900, 1901 & 1902 gliding seasons at Kill Devil Hills. Realize what they needed to learn to get to that cold, windy day, December 17, 1903. Experience their technical struggles developing the first practical airplanes. Feel their frustrations with the conflict of sales vs. showing their secrets. Then another glider?
