On a winter day in 1903, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, two brothers - bicycle mechanics from Dayton, Ohio, - changed history. But it would take the world some time to believe that the age of flight had begun, with the first powered machine carrying a pilot. Orville and Wilbur Wright were men of exceptional courage and determination, and of far-ranging intellectual interests and ceaseless curiosity. When they worked together, no problem seemed to be insurmountable.
