Discover the first Flyer in a Flash

Who were the first people to design and fly a successful practical airplane?
You know the answer, it is the Wright Brothers. Their successful 12 seconds flight sparked up the aviation industry.

This achievement is due to the Wright Flyer, the magnificent beauty for the aeronautical community.
The discovery channel's web portal has a nice interactive flash presentation of the Wright Flyer. A general view of the Flyer, a rotatable view and the innovations that led to the first flight are given in visuals. Also an extra section explains about the propellers in brief.

Note: It doesn't take much of your time.
