In the summer of 1908, Wilbur Wright astonished the world, demonstrating the Wright Flyer in France. No one had ever flown as long and with such control. The world took notice.
Back here in the states, that same summer, Orville Wright was making demonstration flights, too, for the US Army's Signal Corps, trying to get a contract to sell planes to the US government. Dayton aviation historian and photographer Dan Patterson tells the story.
