Fabric Swatch From the Wright Brothers Flyer CAG COA
Fabric Swatch From the Wright Brothers Flyer CAG COA:
Fabric from the Wright Flyer, the first airplane which made its debut flight at Kitty Hawk on 17 December 1903, famously giving wings to mankind. Wing-shaped fabric measures approximately 1.75" x .5", encapsulated by CAG, who certifies that the fabric was taken from the wings of the Wright Flyer flown at Kitty Hawk. When the Flyer was prepared for public exhibition, Orville Wright discovered that the fabric on parts of the plane could not be used, and substituted new fabric. The original fabric was then bequeathed to Lester Gardner, Editor of Aviation and Aeronautical Engineering, and close friend of Orville Wright, who gave the fabric to individuals in the aeronautical community, including Otto Kallir, from whom this fabric originates. Casement by CAG measures 2.375" x 3.375". A rare memento from the first flight, famously launching the century of aviation and space travel. We accept PayPal and Credit cards via Paypal.
