1901 Wright glider photos

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.

Wilbur in the 1901 machine just after landing. The operator remained prone throughout the flight, which the two brothers discovered considerably reduced drag.
