Date: December 19, 2022

This is a second of six total separate locations of the Aviation Heritage National Historic Park, as it is spread out over multiple locations in the Dayton area. This Carillon Park site had remnants of the Wright Brothers bike shop, engineering work area, mini-wind tunnel, and the highlight – the original 1905 Wright Flyer III, the world’s first practical airplane. The plane is below ground so that visitors can see the plane from above and understand how it works. The plane itself is the first airplane to be designed as a National Historic Landmark.
