Sample Wax Museum Script Wilbur Wright Hi, I’m Wilbur Wright. I was born on April 16, 1867, in Millville, Indiana, and later moved to Ohio. When I was almost 30 and still living with my dad, I wanted to do something more with life. So, I received lots of information about flight and started experimenting with kites and gliders. Then on a cold December day in 1903, my brother, Orville, and I tried to successfully fly a motorized airplane in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. And did we fly – at least I did. My little brother only managed to fly 120 feet for 12 seconds on his first try. I nearly flew 200 feet on my first attempt. On my second try, I did much better! I was able to fly about three football fields for 59 seconds! Five years later, I set another world record by flying for 2 hours and 19 minutes in France!
