Young Orville Wright and his brother, Wilbur, had big dreams—and determination. They never gave up on a problem until it was solved. Together they designed a sled that went faster, a kite that flew higher, and even a newspaper folding machine! But their biggest dream was to find a way for man to fly.

Even when others scoffed at the idea of a flying machine, the Wright brothers refused to give up—until they made history at Kitty Hawk with the world's first successful airplane flight.
