"Peter L. 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."--Jacket
