The Fantastic First Flight!

By Jessica M and Hannah B.
New Zealand, Age 10

On the 17th of December 1903 the Wright Brothers (Orville and Wilbur) had their first successful flight. They had been trying for days on end and everyone thought they were going to give up but they kept trying and eventually got there. They got all the materials and started fly in Kitty Hawk in North Carolina. They were on every newspaper you could see.
