360° Video Premiere: Take Flight

May 1, 2020 @ 10:00 am 10:30 am

Join uniquely-animated brothers Wilbur and Orville Wright for a full-throttle adventure through the history and into the future of aeronautics! You’ll take a look at the science, pilots and inventors that allowed humans to take to the skies, and learn about the four forces of flight — lift, weight, thrust and drag.
