    Description

    Kitty Hawk Wright Flyer: Small Segment of Original 1903 Wing Fabric, with Statement of Authenticity. This was the first successful powered controlled flight in history. A tiny 0.375" wide triangular-shaped piece of fabric as sub-divided from an original vintage swatch on a certificate from the Wright family. The segment is mounted on a handsome 5.5" x 7.5" illustrated certificate in a presentation folder. Included are two corroborating certificates from Historic Space. A fine way to own a piece of this historic plane at a reasonable cost. Excellent.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
