Build Your Own Wright Brothers Flyer (4 pictures)

December 17 marks the 110th anniversary of the first successful flight by the Wright Brothers.


The 1903 Wright Flyer is a small, fabric covered piece of engineering that will live on as one of the most important achievements of mankind in the 20th century, and probably in all of our recorded history. The original plane was restored after its last flight, which had resulted in a crash-landing, and is now on permanent display at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C.

Now you can build a replica of their 1903 flyer using these blueprints.
