[Orville Wright Glider Flights - Sepia #2], 1911

Notes
Orville Wright and Alex Ogilvie make adjustments to 1911 glider in same photo as CY05 above (which see). This photo has inscriptions on front and back which are almost illegible. The rear inscription seems to be, “Orville Wright (left) and Alexander Ogilvie (right) tuning up glider used at Kill Devils Hill NC, on site of first flight and learning innermost secrets of aeronautics.”
