Caption: Orville Wright (1871-1948), future US aviator, aged three. Orville and his brother Wilbur are famous for building the first powered aircraft, flown by Orville on 17 December 1903. After this, the Wright brothers continued to develop their machines, flying publicly for the first time in 1908 near Le Mans, France. A few years later, they began a long-running legal dispute with other aviators and designers over aircraft patents, a dispute that hindered the development of aircraft technology in the USA.
