Follow the famous aviators from their bicycle shop in Dayton, Ohio, to the fields of North Carolina where they made their famous flights.

In an era of dirigibles and hot air balloons, the Wright Brothers were among the first innovators of heavier-than-air flight. But in the hotly competitive international race toward flight, Orville and Wilbur were up against a lot more than bad weather. Mechanical failures, lack of information, and even other aviators complicated the Wright Brothers' journey. But thanks to their carefully recorded experiments and a healthy dash of bravery, the Wright Brothers' flying machines took off.
