September 12th– Ron Blum- Wright Gliders, Airplanes & Gliders?

Follow their methodical progress as they develop the first heavier than air, powered airplane through the 1900, 1901 & 1902 gliding seasons at Kill Devil Hills. Realize what they needed to learn to get to that cold, windy day, December 17, 1903. Experience their technical struggles developing the first practical airplanes. Feel their frustrations with the conflict of sales vs. showing their secrets. Then another glider?
