Wright Brothers Historic Glider Flight

Sons of a minister in the United Brethren Church, Wilbur and Orville Wright grew up to become aviation pioneers. The brothers had always been interested in science and technology, but when their father gave them a flying toy in 1878, they set their sights on developing a heavier-than-air flying machine capable of carrying a man.

Beginning in 1899, the Wright brothers began experimenting with gliders. In 1900, they developed their first glider that was capable of carrying a human and conducted their first test flight on October 5, 1900 near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.  Their experiments with gliders led them to develop their first airplane and conduct the first powered airplane flight on December 17, 1903.  Today, the Wright Brothers are some of the most famous figures on aviation history.  You can chronicle that history with this mint sheet of four stamps that pictures the brothers, some of their aircraft, the Wright Brothers National Memorial, and the North Carolina state quarter (which pictures their plane).
