The Wright Brothers

Orville and Wilbur Wright were mere bicycle mechanics, yet they changed the history of mankind by inventing the first aircraft. It is amazing what one can do when you stop limiting your mind and go for it. There is probably no greater success story than that of Orville and Wilbur Wright.

You can learn a lot more by cruising the Internet and reading up on their many challenges which they over came to bring us the first powered flight. Here are some great websites on the Wright Brother's with great information; Check these out:

If you are like me you are very interesting in flying and aviation history. I am so into it, I set out on a countrywide tour to visit as many aviation museums in the country that I could visit in four years; nearly all of them and I put some of my visits up on the Internet too: www.aircraftwashguys.com/action.shtml.

We are so fortunate in our nation to be afforded the time to think and the great civilization to explore and try new things. It is from this we get our greatest invention and greatest minds. Orville and Wilbur Wright were two such gentlemen. Do think on this.
