[Orville Wright Glider Flights - Cyanotype #11], 1911

Although the pilot in this 1911 glider flight at Kill Devil Hills appears to be Orville Wright (especially with the distinctive cap worn by both Orville and Wilbur), Orville on the back of his copy of this photograph from Van Ness Harwood wrote "Ogilvie gliding." Orville is probably the individual facing the camera with a derby hat.
