Construction & Hanging of a Replica of the 1903 Wright Brothers Kittyhawk Plane
This video details the fabrication, assembly, and hanging of an exact replica of the 1903 Wright Flyer by Howard DuFour and several volunteers for the Wright State University Libraries. DuFour, a master machinist, appears periodically throughout the film to explain what processes were used to reproduce accurate parts for the airplane.
The Wright Brothers first achieved controlled, powered flight in December of 1903 at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The 1903 Wright Flyer hanging in Wright State University’s Dunbar Library is an exact replica of that model.
