1903 History

Alison Colvin

Grade 6

Fillmore, IN

1st Place

12 seconds in 1903
5 people witnessed history;

The brothers made a plane two by two
But did they make a plane that flew!

A flip of the coin would decide,
Who would take the very first ride.

Thrust, lift, weight, drag,
Orville, Wilber, would cotton wings become a rag?!

Two brothers in 1903,
did in fact make history!
