This 1/20 scale model kit of the first engine-powered flying machine to make a successful flight commemorates the dawn of powered flight. On December 17, 1903 Orville Wright launched the Wright Flyer I from a sand dune known as Big Kill Devil Hill near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The flight lasted for twelve seconds and a distance of 120 feet. The Wright Flyer I was the culmination of years of research and testing during which the brothers designed and built all the components of the Flyer including the propellers and engine.
This kit is very popular for school projects in both history and science since it is an accurate scale model of the original airplane which is on display in the Smithsonian Institution Museum of Air and Space.
