Kevin and Haley Shiner sit at the controls of the Wright Flyer. The duplicate airplane of the Wright Brothers first flying machine was constructed by Utah State University students.

The aircraft is currently traveling through the state and making stops at various schools. On May 19, the plane stopped at Creekview Elementary and students were able to climb aboard the aircraft.

After touring throughout Utah, the plane will be flown by United States Sen. Jake Garn during a July centennial celebration in Ohio .

The aircraft is an exact replica of the original machine, but USU students used advanced technology while constructing the model. Materials were disguised to look like the items used by the Wright Brothers to give the aircraft an authentic look.
