Adam Examines the Wright Brothers 1909 Military Flyer

The Wright Brothers’ 1909 flyer is an engineering marvel, from its fuel-injected engine to its intake manifold to its ingenious use of bicycle chain. National Air and Space Museum’s Chief Conservator Malcom Collum takes Adam through the history (as told in part through the patterns of damage) and mechanical details of this historic aircraft.

NOTE: At the time of filming, there was a mask mandate in effect at Smithsonian Institution.
