Historian Joe Oldenburg returns with the story of the famous Wright Brothers. Orville and Wilbur Wright, two bicycle mechanics, built the first airplane in the back of their Dayton bicycle shop. The airplane flew only four times on December 17, 1903 and it never flew again. But what happened to the plane over the next 45 years is actually the most intriguing part of the story.
