The Wright Brothers: They Showed the World How to Fly

26 Dec

Orville and Wilbur Wright were just two seemingly average brothers from the American city of Dayton, Ohio, without even a high school diploma. Both were content living as local businessmen, printing newspapers and building bicycles. Like so many others, the two creative and inventive brothers harboured a secret fantasy since childhood, a dream to be able to fly.

In the late 1800s, the world’s leading scientists were trying to construct a machine that could soar above the earth. One by one these brilliant scientists failed, some even falling to their deaths, victims of their own winged contraptions. So, how could Orville and Wilbur even think of succeeding when no one else could?

But succeed they did. This is the story of their life, the risks they took, despite the multiple failures, and their unwillingness to accept defeat. This is the story of how the Wright Brothers find a way to change the world for the better.
