Wright Brothers' First Flight

Argent Editions is pleased to announce the addition of Wright Brothers' and other early aviation photographs to its collection. Among the pictures is the famous "First Flight" photograph from Kitty Hawk, December 17, 1903.

Orville Wright set up the camera before his flight attempt and had John T. Daniels trip the shutter as Wilbur Wright, running along side the aircraft holding the wing, lets go. This first controlled, sustained, powered flight lasted 12 seconds and covered 120 feet.

Modern Original prints from Argent Editions start at $65.
