Origin[edit | edit source]

Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. 1903. Orville and Wilbur Wright make history by building the first aerial vehicle to sustain flight. As self-taught mechanics, they focused their approach on steerability and airflow over engine power. But it was very unstable in flight and difficult to control even with further modifications.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Creates gales of wind to help itself sustain flight. Loves to launch of long runways and sloping hills to just soar along the airways.

Collection[edit | edit source]

The Flyer was activated in a restoration attempt at the Smithsonian in 1985. Some preserved fabric was reattached to the wing and it began flapping around the compound searching for a landing strip. It accidentally got loose and flew over Dulles airport until agents coaxed it down.

Seen first hanging from the Warehouse rafters in the episode "Mild Mannered". Later spotted multiple times during flybys.
