Wright) 与欧尔威尔．莱特 (Orville
Devil Hill) 测试他们对飞行的信念。
他们想要驾驶这架在俄亥俄州达顿 (Dayton) 的脚踏车店后院所组合起来的飞机飞翔的信念，是否需要花费威布尔的一生呢？
"For some years, I have been afflicted with the belief that flight is possible to man. My disease has increased in severity and I feel that it will soon cost me an increased amount of money if not my life." Three years after Wilbur Wright wrote those words, he and his brother Orville put their belief in flight to the test in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina.
Did their attempt to fly an airplane they had built in sections in the back room of their Dayton, Ohio bicycle shop cost Wilbur his life?
