The Wright Brothers, or the First Flyers, are the legendary duo who gave people wings to fly. They are responsible for inventing an airplane that could actually be controlled in air. All the airplane journeys that we take for granted today would not have been possible without the Wright Brothers’ first successful controlled and powered human flight that gave people a new and speedy means of travelling across the world. Join the curious and playful Digby and his big sister Hester as they make their way through the odds and ends at Mr Rummage’s stall at Knick-Knack Market. Discover the wonderful little objects they pick up and enjoy the stories about the great people they belong to. In the late 1800s, the world’s leading scientists were trying to construct a machine that could soar above the earth. One by one these brilliant scientists failed, some even falling to their deaths, victims of their own winged contraptions. So, how could Orville and Wilbur even think of succeeding when no one else could? But succeed they did. This is the story of their life, the risks they took, despite the multiple failures, and their unwillingness to accept defeat. This is the story of how the Wright Brothers find a way to change the world for the better.

Republished by the Science Museum to mark the centenary of the Wright brothers' pioneering flights on 17 December 1903, this classic account provides an introduction to their remarkable careers and their unique place in aviation history. The Wrights were arguably the first to make powered, sustained and controlled flights, near Kitty Hawk, NC; the aeroplane, the first Flyer, was of their own design and construction and had been developed over a period of three years. It was loaned to the Science Museum, London, from 1928 to 1948, and is now displayed in the National Air and Space Museum (Smithsonian Institution) in Washington DC, a reproduction remaining in London. This edition of Gibbs-Smith's authoritative text, first published in 1987, is illustrated with a number of historic photographs and detailed diagrams.
