Flight reinvented

This is an historically accurate replica of the original wright flyer. They will be flying it at Kitty Hawk on December 17, 2003 to commemorate the original first flight.

Interesting thing. They actually aren't 100% sure it's and exact replica since there are no surviving copies of the Wright Brothers' plans or engineering notes. The folks that built it have spent the last 4-5 years trying to recreate the plans from photos, journal entries and descriptions.
