Jakab and Rick Young bring together for the first time nearly seventy of Wilbur and Orville Wright's published writings into a single, annotated reference. Spanning the decades from the brothers' turn-of-the-century experiments with gliders until Orville's death in 1948, the articles describe the design of their aircraft, early test flights, and camp life at Kitty Hawk. Other pieces discuss technical subjects, such as airplane stability and the relationship of weight, speed, and power. As the airplane evolved, the brothers frequently commented on such subjects as the future of commercial aviation and air travel, sport flying, air safety, and military aviation."--BOOK JACKET+-+13843451064186ocn004714036book19780.56Wright, WilburPhotographs by the Wright Brothers : prints from the glass negatives in the Library of Congress : a micropublication commemorating the seventy-fifth anniversary of the first flight by the Wright Brothers, December 17, 1903HistoryPictorial works36412ocn000531174book19530.25Wright, OrvilleHow we invented the airplaneHistoryBeretter om hvorledes brødrene Wright byggede deres flyvemaskine, der blev det første bemandede fly, der fløj ved egen motorkraft+-+1711071395912ocn045199610visu19990.06Communications and transportationHistoryJuvenile worksExplores the impact of the inventions of Alexander Graham Bell, Henry Ford and the Wright Brothers, which established the foundation for today's giant communications and transportation industries491ocn053191136com20030.70The Wilbur and Orville Wright papers at the Library of CongressHistoryBiographyArchivesSourcesDocuments the lives of Wilbur and Orville Wright whose pioneering work led to the world's first powered, controlled, and sustained flight.

My disease has increased in severity and I feel that it will soon cost me an increased amount of money if not my life." So wrote a quiet young Ohioan in 1900, one in an ancient line of men who had wanted to fly, men who wanted it passionately, fecklessly, hopelessly. But now, at the turn of the twentieth century, Wilbur Wright and a scattered handful of other adventurers conceived a conviction that the dream lay at last within reach, and in a headlong race across ten years and two continents, they competed to conquer the air. James Tobin, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in biography, has at last given this inspiring story its definitive telling. For years Wright and his younger brother, Orville, experimented in utter obscurity, supported only by their exceptional family. Meanwhile, the world watched as the imperious Samuel Langley, armed with a rich contract from the U.S. War Department and all the resources of the Smithsonian Institution, sought to scale up his unmanned models to create the first manned flying machine. But while Langley became obsessed with flight as a problem of power, the Wrights grappled with it as a problem of balance. Thus their machines took two very different paths, his toward oblivion, theirs toward the heavens. As Tobin relates, the Wrights' 1903 triumph at Kitty Hawk, however hallowed in American lore, was ill-reported and disbelieved. So, while the two brothers struggled to transform their delicate contraption into a practical airplane, others moved to overtake them as the leading pioneers of flight. In France, rivals scoffed at the Wrights even as they rushed to imitate them. At home, the great inventor Alexander Graham Bell seized the fallen banner of his friend Langley and thrust it into the hands of a circle of young daredevils, urging them "to get into the air." From this group emerged the motorcyclist Glenn Curtiss, "fastest man in the world," whose aerial challenge to Wilbur Wright culminated in an unforgettable showdown over New York harbor. To Conquer the Air is a hero's tale of overcoming obstacles within and without that plumbs the depths of creativity and character. With a historian's accuracy and a novelist's eye, Tobin has captured the interplay of remarkable personalities at an extraordinary moment in our history, in the centennial year of human flight. To Conquer the Air is itself a heroic achievement.

Whether their organizations are foundering in a lackluster economy or are aspiring to dominate an ultra-competitive market, leaders and professionals in all fields would do well to adopt the Wright brothers' principles."--Jacket+-+869279963516106ocn048876491book20020.06Busby, PeterFirst to fly : how Wilbur & Orville Wright invented the airplaneJuvenile worksBiographyA look at the lives of the Wright brothers, from their childhood interest in flight, through their study of successful gliders and other flying machines, to their triumphs at Kitty Hawk and beyond+-+823763028515221ocn047764353book20020.06Old, Wendie CTo fly : the story of the Wright brothersHistoryJuvenile worksBiographyTraces the work that the two Wright brothers did together to develop the first machine-powered aircraft+-+K298863615136216ocn000567726book19500.07Reynolds, Quentin JamesThe Wright brothers : pioneers of American aviationJuvenile worksBiographyA biography of the two brothers from Dayton, Ohio, who built and flew the first airplane+-+355293948512181ocn049663555book20030.06Collins, MaryAirborne : a photobiography of Wilbur and Orville WrightJuvenile worksBiographyPictorial worksExamines the lives of the Wright brothers and discusses their experiments and triumphs in the field of flight+-+3204177425119510ocn032430908book19960.06Shea, GeorgeFirst flight : the story of Tom Tate and the Wright BrothersJuvenile worksBiographyFictionA twelve-year-old boy named Tom Tate meets Orville and Wilbur Wright and witnesses the invention of the airplane in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, in 1903+-+706799915511479ocn052575582book20030.21Adams, NoahThe flyers : in search of Wilbur and Orville WrightHistoryBiographyA rich and personal account of the Wright Brothers and their world, in time for the 100th anniversary of the first flight at Kitty Hawk+-+676495559611092ocn048241344book20030.01Yolen, JaneMy brothers' flying machine : Wilbur, Orville, and meHistoryJuvenile worksBiographyProvides a look at the lives of Orville and Wilbur Wright, as seen through the eyes of their younger sister, Katharine, who provided support and encouragement while they worked on their many inventions+-+140624168510921ocn050859278book20030.06Maurer, RichardThe Wright sister : Katharine Wright and her famous brothersJuvenile worksBiographyPresents a brief biography of the sister of Orville and Wilbur Wright+-+719068612510633ocn051266232book20030.19Crouch, Tom DThe Wright brothers and the invention of the aerial ageHistoryBiographyWith the hundredth anniversary of the Wright Brothers' history-making flight at Kitty Hawk, world attention is once again turning to these intrepid American inventors. Written by two of the world's leading experts on the Wrights, The Wright Brothers and the Invention of the Aerial Age will provide a definitive, richly illustrated look at the lives of the brothers and their world-changing invention. Wilbur and Orville were two eccentric owners of a bicycle shop in the heartland. but it was invention, engineering, and the new possibilities of manned flight that obsessed them. In just three years, they went from designing and flying a glider and creating a test wind tunnel to Wilbur's history-making moments in December 1903 above the dunes at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In moving prose, Crouch and Jakab explain the Wrights' achievements and the moments of their great successes, and they paint a masterful personal portrait of the two sometimes erratic, genius personalities (never married, the brothers lived together all their lives), and, most important, the world of pioneering aviation in which they operated. Poignant archival photographs throughout the book capture that world, where ox carts and airplanes co-existed and where two determined presidents and kings celebrated brothers from Dayton. But the most poignant of all the images remains that of an airplane, almost kite-like in its simplicity, struggling skyward from the dunes at Kitty Hawk. Annotation.
