This is a very artistic photograph of the Wright Brothers aircraft the "Wright Flyer". The photograph was take in 1911, and shows the first aircraft to fly. A little known fact is that the Wright Brothers, in addition to being pioneering aviators, were also avid amature photographers. Because of this, there is a large source of photographs documenting their early aviation efforts.
