- from The Wright Brothers
In the late 1800s, Orville and Wilbur weren’t the only people who dreamed of flying machines. Other inventors were testing their own ideas.
Although some soared high, few went far before falling to the ground. None had perfect control of their crafts in flight. But two of them, Otto Lilienthal and Octave Chanute, inspired the brothers, and helped put them on the flight to success.
