17 Dec : First successful flight on the ‘Flyer’

Flying has always been a fantasy. So, the Wright Brothers kept trying their hand and finally got success today in 1903. 
The Wright Flyer was the first successful heavier-than-air powered aircraft. It was designed and built by the Wright brothers. They flew it four times on December 17, 1903.

Today, the airplane is exhibited in the National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C.

The Flyer was based on the Wrights’ experience testing gliders at Kitty Hawk between 1900 and 1902.
Their last glider, the 1902 Glider, led directly to the design of the Flyer.

1903 में आज पहली बार इंसान के आसमान में उड़ने का सपना सच हुआ था। आज ही के दिन अमेरिका के Wright Brothers ने ‘The Flyer’ नाम के विमान को पहली बार उड़ाया था। इस 12 सेकेंड की उड़ान ने आज इस्तेमाल होने वाले विमानों की नीव रखी थी। अब ये विमान Washington D.C के National Air & Space Museum में रखा हुआ है।
