The Man Who Inspired the Wright Brothers

I am the bat.

At half past ten on the morning of December 17, 1903, the Wright Flyer I went airborne four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, and flew into history. At the controls of the spruce-and-muslin aircraft was Orville Wright; he flew 120 feet in twelve seconds, at an altitude of roughly 10 feet. On some subsequent flights, his brother Wilbur piloted the machine.
