Near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, Orville and Wilbur Wright made the
first successful flight in history of a self-propelled, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903. Orville piloted the gasoline-powered, propeller-driven biplane, which stayed aloft for 12 seconds and
covered 120 feet on its inaugural flight.
