How The Wright Brothers Blew It

In 1905, the Wright Brothers had the only heavier-than-air machine that actually flew. By 1915, their company no longer existed as an independent entity. How The Wright Brothers Blew It is the story of how they abandoned their engineering roots to concentrate on sales and licensing and in the process lost out to their competitors.

One of those competitors was Glenn Curtiss, whose namesake museum I visited last year.
