Storyboard Text

  • We're the Wright brothers.
  • Me too!
  • I'd like to be able to fly someday!
  • Orville, we should try out our own ideas and make man's dream of flying come true!
  • Let's get started.
  • Wilbur and Orville Wright were American inventors and are credited with inventing the airplane. 
  • It didn't work as we had expected.
  • There's still something missing.
  • The Wright brothers were always curious about aeronautics and flying since they were young.
  • Success!
  • We did it, Orville!
  • When a famous German aviator Otto Lilienthal, whose research they had studied, died in a glider crash in 1896, the brothers noticed that these primitive aircraft lacked suitable controls and therefore decided to start their own experiments with flight.
  • Our fully controlled and powered airplane is becoming famous!
  • They made their first test flights at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, where the strong winds helped launch the gliders and the sands would help soften the landings in case of a crash. Their first two gliders flown in 1900 and 1901, failed to perform as the Wright brothers had hoped. 
  • On December 17, 1903, the Wright brothers had finally succeeded in making the first sustained, controlled flight of a power-driven airplane. 
  • The Wright brothers soon found that their success wasn't appreciated by all. Wilbur decided to go to Europe in 1908, where he made many public flights and found a more receptive audience. In 1909 Orville joined his brother in Europe and they became huge celebrities. They began to sell their airplanes in Europe, before returning to the US. The brothers became wealthy businessmen, filling contracts for airplanes in Europe and the US.  
  • Indeed.
