Living History

In the early days of the 20th century, two brothers from Dayton, Ohio set their sights on the skies. To accomplish this they needed innovation and invention, to build what today we take for granted. This is a view looking through a replica wind tunnel they Wright brothers used to test their thoughts and equations. It was built from a necessity to replace what was then the accepted mathematical equations for lift and drag, which they re-wrote with such accuracy, that they are still used today. This replica is housed at a private museum in downtown Petoskey.
