Caption: Wright Military Flyer. US Army flight of a biplane designed by the Wright brothers. US aviation pioneers Wilbur and Orville Wright produced a series of Wright Flyer aircraft models, starting with the first successful flight in a heaver-than-air machine (1903). Among the early designs they produced were several Military Flyer models that were demonstrated to the US Army, including demonstration flights here at Fort Myer, Virginia, USA. The first demonstration was on 28 June 1909, with the aircraft purchased by the Aeronautical Division of the US Army Signal Corps on 2 August 1909. Photograph from July 1909, from the Harris and Ewing collection.
