Cinebook Recounts the Wright Brothers Paperback
Illustrated by Marcel Uderzo
Part of the Cinebook Recounts series
This third volume recounts the Wright Brothers, who invented the modern aeroplane.
The brothers made the first controlled, powered and sustained heavier-than-air human flight on 17 December 1903 and, in the two subsequent years, they developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft.
Although not the first to build and fly experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed wing flight possible.
