The Wright brothers inaugurated the aerial age and helped fashion a radically new world with their historic first flights at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, on December 17, 1903. The first glimpses of what that world would become are reflected in the pioneer aircraft on view. In less than two decades, the airplane was transformed from an exciting new invention to a machine of practical utility, primed to become the defining technology of the 20th century.
