Wright Family Donates Wing Fabric

Remaining Wing Fabric from the Original 1903 Wright Flyer Donated to Carillon Historical Park:

On December 17, 1903 Orville Wright made the first successful flight on the beaches of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. He and his brother, Wilbur, made three more historic flights that day. Now, 118 years later, some of the last remaining wing coverings from that original Wright Flyer are being gifted to Carillon Historical Park in Dayton, Ohio.
