Orville Wright

Ohio Historical Society

Supporters of Dayton's Wright Brothers are applauding an Ohio resolution defending the famous aviators' place in history as the first in flight. 


A resolution moving through the Statehouse challenges Connecticut's insistence that one of its aviators beat the Wright brothers of Dayton to the first successful airplane flight by two years.

Ohio and North Carolina both claim the designation "First in Flight".

Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy has signed into law a measure officially declaring a german-born aviator and Bridgeport resident as the first man to fly.

A collection of sketches by the Wright Brothers is being sold in an online auction.
