||Orville Wright stands aside the 1901 glider which has been
upended by the wind. Note the craft is not nose-down, but nose UP. The Wrights
employed a 'canard' design with the elevator up front.|
|In 1901, as in 1900, the craft was often flown as a kite for purposes
of measuring its lift and angle of flight.
