Finally! Working On the 1902 Glider - Monday, September 8, 1902

The History: Orville reported in his personal diary that he had, "Killed two mice" and "Chased hungry razorbacks" [a thin-bodied long-legged half-wild mongrel hog].

For more than a week the brothers have been in Kill Devil Hills working on their campsite building. At about 2:00 P.M. they finally started working on their 1902 glider and finished for the day at 5:30 P.M. They completed the upper wing's frame - now it was ready to add the ribs.
