This sculpture represents the third Flyer that the Wright Brothers constructed to continue their flying experiments at Huffman Prairie, east of Dayton, within the boundaries of what is now Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The Flyer is piloted by Wilbur Wright while his brother Orville watches from the ground. With this Flyer, which Orville considered the most important of the Flyers that the brothers built, they learned to control their aircraft and made practical manned flight a reality. In 1947 Orville Wright assisted in the salvage and reconstruction of the original Wright Flyer III, which is on display at the Carillon Historical Park in Dayton.Dedicated May 2001Larry Godwin, Sculptor
