On this day in 1903 at Kill Devil Hills in Kitty Hawk, N.C., two bicycle makers from Ohio, the Wright brothers, ushered in the age of controlled, powered flight.  They developed the three axis control system making controlled flight possible.  Orville piloted the first flight that lasted 12 seconds and flew a distance of 120 feet.
