Metal Earth model to assemble PLANE by the WRIGHTS brothers
On December 17, 1903, Orville WRIGHTS took off for the first time with an airplane heavier than the controlled air … The flight was modest … 12 seconds! He nevertheless went down in history, associated with his brother Willburg as builder of the first plane. Of course, especially in France, this first is disputed … Clément Ader had succeeded long before (in 1890) in making his EOLE take off … without this being able to be proven, nor that we know if the flight, rather a jump, was actually controlled.
The Wrights brothers continued after their first flight and developed control of their aircraft. 2 years later, the flights are longer, controlled turns make it possible to vary the flight path … they are really the pioneers of airplane flight …
