The Mini Wright Flyer

The Wright Flyer was the first successful powered aircraft. The Wright brothers flew it four times on December 17, 1903 near the Kill Devil Hills, about four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. This large model was found at the 1940 Air Terminal Museum. Recently, I forgot what time they opened and arrived an hour early. They were kind enough to allow me inside, where I was able to shoot some interior shots without a crowd.
