Orville and Wilbur Wirght
The Wright Brothers

Meghan M. and Anne K.

They made the first flight EVER in a machine that is heavier then air itself!

  • They made the first piloted and powered airplane.
  • The Wright Brothers were not the first to people to try and put people in the air, but they were the first succesful ones that landed their plane without an injury!
  • They had the first patent for their succesful airplane engine!
  • Airplanes make transportation of long distances a LOT easier.
  • The Wright Brothers plane could stay in the air for hours!
  • The United States Army bought the first airplane, by the Wright brothers ( that means their airplanes were probably relaible)
  • The Wright Brothers airplanes are in the aerospace hall of fame

Why are the Wright Brothers heros?

The Wright Brothers are heros because they worked and completed the first succesful airplane. Also the Wright Brothers opened the door to a new type of transportation that is used every day to connect families and friends. The Wright Brothers also never gave up when something got tough or their plan didn't work the kept working and their goal and we think that is something heros do and  also something everyone should learn from.
