Caption: Wright brothers testing a glider. Orville (foreground) & Wilbur (background) Wright, flying a test glider as a kite in 1901. These tests along with manned flights and wind tunnel experiments allowed the brothers to construct the first ever powered flight aircraft, which they flew at Kill Devil Hill, Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, USA, in 1903.
