Wright Brothers Day soars on historic date

Wright Brothers Day at Wright State celebrated the 113th anniversary of Wilbur Wright’s 39-minute flight on Huffman Prairie on Oct. 5, 1905. The flight demonstrated that the Wright brothers had advanced their design to the point of a practical airplane.

“It was kind of an defining moment for what they’ve been doing with their airplane innovation,” said Samantha Andrus, a senior marketing major and president of Wright State University’s American Marketing Association.

The event featured displays highlighting innovative projects from Wright State researchers and local organizations.

This was the eighth year for the event. It was held in the Student Union Atrium and was organized by the American Marketing Association, a student organization in the Raj Soin College of Business.
