                   Ohio  Airplane Museums.

Orville Wright lived from 1871 - 1948 and his brother Wilbur Wright lived from 1867 - 1912. 

They were the worlds first successful airplane engineers and made the first flight at Kitty Hawk North Carolina on December, 17th, 1903.  Even though there were a small number of airplanes which made powered flights before the Wright Brothers, none of them were controllable.  Therefore the Wright Brothers received the credit for the first controllable powered, heavier than air flight.  There was another reason that they received credit that was not very well known. they received credit because they had organized documentation in which, where anyone that was handy with tools, the airplane could be reconstructed and flown.  Wright Brothers Pictures, Videos, Models and Books
