This 1:20 scale display model kit of the first engine-powered flying machine to make a successful flight commemorates the dawn of powered flight. On December 17, 1903 Orville Wright launched the Wright Flyer I from a sand dune known as Big Kill Devil Hill near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The flight lasted 12 seconds and a distance of 120 feet. The Wright Flyer I was the culmination of years of research and testing during which brothers Orville and Wilbur Wright designed and built all the components of the Flyer including the propellers and engine.
