ISBN: 0-394-84700-8 Language: English Description: Young Orville and Wilbur Wright loved building things. From the fastest sled in town to the highestflying kite, the Wright brothers' creations were always a step ahead of everyone else's. Orv and Will had a big dream-they wanted to fly! As they got older, they learned all about mechanics from fixing bicycles in their shop, and they studied math and physics. They spent years perfecting their plans. Then, on December 17, 1903, Orville took off in the world's first flying machine! The Wright brothers' airplane is one of the most amazing-and lifechanging-inventions in American history.
