Wright Brothers FlightPhotograph by John T. Daniels, 1903
"It speaks volumes for the rapid rise of photography that a camera was present at Kitty Hawk on the historic day in 1903 when Orville and Wilbur Wright’s Flyer I first took to the sky. The honor of pressing the shutter button actually went to John T. Daniels, who’d come from the nearby Coast Guard station to observe the endeavors of what he termed ‘a pair of poor nuts.’ The famous first flight, seen above, spanned 120 feet (37 meters) and lasted 12 seconds."
