The painting shows the Wright brothers in the foreground; Orville (with the moustache) is seated in a chair and Wilbur is perched on the edge of a cluttered table. Also shown are their penciled notes and experimental equipment, including the wind tunnel with which they developed their aerodynamic formulas. In the background is the scene of the first flight at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, and in the upper left is the granite monument on Kill Devil Hill, North Carolina, which commemorates the first successful, sustained, powered flights in a heavier-than-air machine. In the right background is the Wrights' Dayton, Ohio, boyhood home. At left is the famous airplane which Wilbur and Orville built and delivered to the Army Signal Corps in 1909.
