Wright Brothers' Flying Machine: Nova

2004 TV-G

Truly, Orville and Wilbur Wright were magnificent men in their flying machine. On December 17, 1903, the brothers' long-held dream of man soaring with the birds became reality and changed the world forever. PBS television's popular "Nova" series traces the brothers' journey (from their bicycle shop in Ohio) and attempts to re-create the historic first flight using a modern-day team of pilots, historians, builders and aviation experts.
