The first working _________________________ was invented, designed, made, and flown by the _________________________ brothers, Wilbur Wright and Orville Wright. Their "_______________________" was a fabric-covered biplane with a _________________________ frame.

On December 17, ____________, their plane flew for 12 ______________________ and for a distance of 120 feet (37 m). The flight took place at Kitty Hawk, _________________________, USA.

Orville and Wilbur Wright were raised in Dayton, Ohio. Before _________________________ their airplane, they operated a _________________________ repair and sales shop. They made their own bicycles.

The brothers chose Kitty Hawk to fly their planes because it was an isolated town on North Carolina's Outer Banks that had steady _________________________ and sand dunes on which they could glide and land gently. The brothers' first two gliders failed. Later that year, the brothers built a _________________________ in which they tested over 200 wing and airframe designs.

Returning to Kitty Hawk, they began test flights in 1903. The planes accelerated on a monorail _____________________ and flew into the air.

During the next few years, the brothers developed more sophisticated planes. They later formed the _________________________, which built and sold their airplanes.

The Wright brothers' famous airplane is on permanent _________________________ at the National Air and Space _________________________ in Washington, D.C., USA.
