The Wright brothers(Wilbur and Orville Wright) were bicycle mechanics who believed they could build and fly a self-propelled flying machine.
They did just that on December 17, 1903, 10:35 a.m., at Kitty Hawlk, North Carolina. On that very day, Wilbur
won the coin-toss, but his first attempt failed. So Orville harnessed in his seat, took off with a light weight,
horsepower engine into 27 mph winds, 120 feet off the ground for 12 seconds, sailing without reduction of speed. And the aviation age had begun.
