The Dream of Flight

presents photos, letters, and diary excerpts from the experiments and efforts that led to the Wright brothers' December 17, 1903, achievement of the first sustained, powered, and controlled flight in a heavier-than-air flying machine. The site includes a flight timeline and examines the notion of flight as a universal aspiration -- a desire expressed in civilizations from classical times to the early 20th century.
