Wright Flyer on the Great Dome

Location: Great Dome
Date: 2003.12.17

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first controlled powered flight, a replica of the Wright Brothers' first airplane made its way onto the great dome. Given the grey December weather, it likely encountered turbulence while coming in for its landing. Inside the plane, a dummy figure of one of the brothers was along for the ride.

After verifying the safety of the plane and making some minor modifications, MIT Physical Plant decided to leave the hack up for the remainder of the day.
