On December 17, 1903 at the secluded dunes of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, mankind first took to the air in controlled, powered flight. Orville Wright piloted the machine he and his brother Wilbur designed and constructed for 12 second over a distance of 120 feet. Several more flights were made that day, the longest by Wilbur at 852 feet and lasting 59 seconds. From these first small steps the airplane was born. This print is a depiction of the iconic Wright Flyer in flight on that day.
