The #1 New York Times bestseller from David McCullough, two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize—the dramatic story-behind-the-story about the courageous brothers who taught the world how to fly—Wilbur and Orville Wright. 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. Wilbur was unquestionably a genius. Orville had such mechanical ingenuity as few had ever seen. That they had no more than a public high school education and little money never stopped them in their mission to take to the air. Nothing did, not even the self-evident reality that every time they took off, they risked being killed. In this “enjoyable, fast-paced tale” (The Economist), master historian David McCullough “shows as never before how two Ohio boys from a remarkable family taught the world to fly” (The Washington Post) and “captures the marvel of what the Wrights accomplished” (The Wall Street Journal). He draws on the extensive Wright family papers to profile not only the brothers but their sister, Katharine, without whom things might well have gone differently for them. Essential reading, this is “a story of timeless importance, told with uncommon empathy and fluency…about what might be the most astonishing feat mankind has ever accomplished…The Wright Brothers soars” (The New York Times Book Review).

James Tobin, award-winning author of Ernie Pyle's War and The Man He Became, has penned the definitive account of the inspiring and impassioned race between the Wright brothers and their primary rival Samuel Langley across ten years and two continents to conquer the air. For years, Wilbur Wright and his younger brother, Orville, experimented in obscurity, supported only by their exceptional family. Meanwhile, the world watched as Samuel Langley, armed with a contract from the US War Department and all the resources of the Smithsonian Institution, sought to create the first manned flying machine. But while Langley saw flight as a problem of power, the Wrights saw a problem of balance. Thus their machines took two very different paths—Langley’s toward oblivion, the Wrights’ toward the heavens—though not before facing countless other obstacles. With a historian’s accuracy and a novelist’s eye, Tobin has captured an extraordinary moment in history. To Conquer the Air is itself a heroic achievement.

The book is a fictional account of a supernatural incident that lands Wilbur and Orville Wright in present day Kitty Hawk. Presumed to be reenactors who often entertain the tourists, the brothers are confronted with a world that has evolved technologically; in great part due to their aeronautical designs and calculations. While witnessing the applications of their fl ying machine’s successors, they observe the utilization of their invention in the fi elds of defense, business, and leisure. Frustrated with the inability to convince people who they really are, the brothers struggle with the possibility that they could be hallucinating or experiencing some type of subconscious dream brought on by the shock of being buried in a sandstorm. Making the best of a troublesome situation, they use what time they have to observe and record the dimensions and components of their “yet to be built” Flyer; a reproduction of which is on display at the National Park Service’s Visitor’s Center. With no warning, they are mysteriously returned to their own time to live out their destiny as history has recorded.

This novel, Inside the Wright Brothers: Flight is Possible, presents the Wright Brothers as idealists who build a dream out of the nuts and bolts of their everyday reality. There is a hard core of steel in the Wrights that, however compassionate, polite, accommodating and modest they appear to be to other people, is the straight arrow that allows them to see their life's work clearly, to make every decision and action move towards the achievement of their goal, and to seldom make false judgments or false gestures that would cause them to deviate from their true course. The assurance that guides the brothers is that quality in creative people that allows them to work towards their life's goal no matter who or what encourages or discourages them, advances them or retards them, promotes them or disparages them. Familiarity with the Wright Brothers story has made the invention of the world's first airplane seem to have a fairy-tale ambiance which is divorced from the sweat and anxiety of everyday life. This assumption of an effortless invention process is actually a hold-over from the initial response to their accomplishment by the people of the Wright Brothers' own time. While suitably impressed with the achievement of the Wright Brothers, the people of the early 20th Century remained unaware of the complex process that the Wright Brothers had actually gone through in order to produce such amazing results. The lack of appreciation of the complexity of the invention process is a result of the pronouncements of "aviation experts" of the time who failed to appreciate the magnitude of the Wright accomplishment for two reasons: an inability to imagine the number and complexity of the challengesthat the Wrights had found solutions to, and a desire to limit the Wright's legal hold over their inventions in light of what promised to be a great financial future for the new innovation. In effect, while the public of the early 20th Century marveled at the invention of the airplane, and gave full credit to the Wright Brothers, many "aviation experts"assumed that the Wright Brothers' contribution to the invention process had involved nothing more complicated than a little tinkering with the ideas of those who were better qualified - by education and by academic eminence - to invent the airplane. True appreciation of the wonder of the Wright Brothers' contribution to the invention of controlled, human-piloted, powered flight has been reserved for the detailed historical and aeronautical researches and studies of our own time. It is here, a century after the Wright Brothers' accomplishment, that the mythical story - of small-town bicycle mechanics astonishing the world with a feat as impressive as the boy Arthur pulling the sword from the stone - and the modern story of painstaking scientific research and development - of problem, theory, experiment and solution - come together. The novel explores the tenacity which allows the Wright Brothers to cling with an eagle's talons to the single idea that human flight is possible.

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.

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.
