Description
This Wright Flyer Model Airplane is a scale model of the original Wright Flyer airplane flown at Kitty Hawk. The Wright Flyer Model Airplane is crafted from wood and is an impressive aviation gift. The Wright Flyer model aircraft arrives fully assembled and includes a display stand.

The Wright Flyer sometimes referred to as Flyer I or Kitty Hawk, was the first powered aircraft designed and built by the Wright brothers. The flight on December 17, 1903 was recognized by the Federation Aeronautique Internationale, as the “first sustained and controlled heavier-than-air powered flight.” The Wright Flyer was a canard biplane meaning that the pilot flew lying on his stomach and steered by moving a cradle attached to his hips. The first flight lasted 12 seconds for a distance of 120 feet with Orville at the controls.

This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The result is a handsome, wood airplane sculpture to be admired and enjoyed.

For an even better price see the 1/32 Wright Flyer.

Outstanding replica given as a gift!

We gave this replica to a flying enthusiast. He is a commercial pilot and loves everything to do with flying. This was the perfect gift for him to display in his office.

This was the perfect item for my home library that has a historical/antique theme. I arrived in great condition and simply looks really cool. My 11 year-old thought so, too.
