The Wright Brothers

American brothers Wilbur (left) and Orville (right) Wright invented the first

practical airplane. Creative tinkerers from a young age, they built a printing

press and worked on bicycles before turning their attention toward flight.

Beginning with kites and then gliders, they achieved the first powered flight

in 1903.
