On 17th December the Wright brothers made an airplane. They invited the press out to see if their invention will work. Wilber (one of the Wright Brothers) said to his brother hopefully our airplane will work . The airplane had to take off to make the front page . The airplane flew 120 feet it was a success! And now the Wright Brothers made the front page and became famous for making the first ever flying airplane in history.
