First to Fly: How Wilbur and Orville Wright Invented the Airplane
Peter Busby (au); David Craig (il)
It all started with a toy. As boys, Wilbur & Orville loved making their toy helicopter whirl through the air. As they grew older, they found that by trial & error they could solve almost any problem, whether it was funning a faster printing press or building a better bicycle. But the idea of flight still fascinated them. They studied & experimented, & finally, on Dec. 17, 1903, at Kitty Hawk, NC, they became the first to fly a powered airplane. What they accomplished changed the world forever. This inspiring account of the Wright brothersí achievement is complemented by original paintings & period photographs -- as well as detailed diagrams & easy-to-follow features that explain exactly how Wilbur & Orville mastered the challenges of flight. Full-color illus. Oversize.
