Experiments: On the slope of Kill Devil Hill to the left, the Wright brothers experimented with gliders in the period 1900 - 1903. Here also Wilbur Wright failed in an attempted power-driven flight, December 14, 1903. After just 3 1/2 seconds in the air the Wrights' flying machine stalled and settled to the ground. Two days were needed for repairs. Then the stage was set for the successful flight of December 17.
