The Wright Brothers - movies

Unfortunately we only have the famous photograph of Wilbur watching Orville take the 1903 Flyer up on the first heavier than air, powered, manned flight.



However a simulated movie of how it might have looked has been created from a 3D model of the Flyer, with a cine-effects overlay used to age it.
