Fate of Wright Brothers factory, mired in ownership squabbles, has preservationists concerned

In the history of powered flight, few places are as significant as Dayton, Ohio, the home of Orville and Wilbur Wright, the brothers who invented, built and flew the first successful airplane.

Dayton is where they created the plane that they so famously tested during a 12-second flight from Kitty Hawk, N.C., in 1903. Dayton is also where the first pilots were trained and where the country’s first airplane manufacturing factory was built.
