Orville and Wilbur Wright invented the Airplane onThursday, December 17, 1903. These two brother's change history forever. Because of there great deal of passion and motivation we could travel at a faster speed all over the world. Of course that many inventions have there advantages and disadvantages.
The airplane had and still has many ups and downs but we could try to over come these things and just try to see the positive side of this great invention. The Wrights Brothers had a good childhood.
