Description

This handsomely illustrated book, published in celebration of the 100th anniversary of powered flight, tells the story of the brothers whose ingenuity and ambition left an indelible mark on aviation's history. Aided by over 100 rarely seen photographs from the Wright brothers' personal collection, Kitty Hawk and Beyond details not only the historic first flight of December 17, 1903 but also describes the founding of Wright Company; the Wrights' celebrated tour of Italy and Germany; Wilbur's untimely death in 1912; and Orville's decision to sell the Wright Company and abandon the production of airplanes altogether.
