Product Description

The 1903 Wright Flyer, the world’s first successful airplane, serves as the centerpiece of The Wright Brothers & The Invention of the Aerial Age exhibition, which opened in 2003 to celebrate the centennial of the Wright brothers’ historic flights. For the first time, the airplane is being displayed on the floor, so you can get a close-up, eye-level look at the historic craft that ushered in the age of flight. The first part of this exhibition tells the story of how Wilbur and Orville Wright invented the airplane—who they were, how they worked, and what they accomplished. The second part shows how their monumental achievement affected the world in the decade that followed, when people everywhere became fascinated with flight. This exhibition is on view in Gallery 209 of the National Air and Space Museum.

This is my second Smithsonian Wright Flyer Kite. The kite flys very well. Best of all is the ease of assembly. We have flown stick built versions of the same kite, but they are not durable. In the Omaha wind the Smithsonian Wright Flyer Kite is a sure flier. I would rate it as at least a 4 star product

Instructions are not very good - the wing supports need to be lined up before combining the rods from both sides together otherwise they get caught inside the sleeve and it is difficult to disassemble. Keep the string clear from tangles and make sure all four lines are tight for best performance
