By Chelsea and Kellie B.
New Zealand, Age 11

17th December 1903, the Wright brothers,Orville and Wilbur had tried numerous times to fly their new invention (an aeroplane). This was a very important day for Orville and Wilbur. They hoped so much that they would be successful as they had failed so many times before. Lots of people and relatives came to see the plane fly as they wished in the future that they would be able to fly safely in a plane to different places.
