WASHINGTON -- Up in the sky? It's a bird? It's a plane! Thanks to the Wright Brothers, there are planes in the sky. One-hundred nine years ago today, Wilbur and Orville Wright conducted the first successful manned powered-airplane flights.
In honor of the anniversary, The Huffington Post swung by the Wright Flyer aircraft on display in The Wright Brothers & The Invention of the Aerial Age exhibition at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum.
Happy birthday Wright Flyer!
