The Wright Brothers’ 1902 glider represents some of the most important aerodynamic work ever done. With this glider, the Wrights proved out their theories on flight and solved the problems of mechanical flight. I built a full-size replica of the Wright 1902 glider and successfully flew it at Lake El Mirage, California, in November, 1972. Later, I donated it to the California Science Center. In year 2000 it was badly damaged during remodeling there and returned for repair. Instead of repairing it, I completely rebuilt it. If you have MS PowerPoint, download the file for better viewing. The file contains Speaker Notes. This new replica is now on permanent display at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. Story at http://www.rqriley.com/1902_glider.htm
