: THE STORY OF THE WRIGHT BROTHERS
Wilbur and Orville Wright watched birds, trying to figure out a way that
man could do what they did. Before the boys were teenagers, they were flying
fanatics. Their father had given them a toy helicopter, and they wanted
to know how it worked. For years the brothers worked to control flight.
They worked as printers and then as bicycle repairmen. They tinkered, twisted,
turned, pushed, and pulled. The glider they built worked well, but how
could they control it. Read
