I found this great photograph of Wilbur Wright in Pau, France, with Orville.

Wilbur Wright in Pau, France

Wilbur is holding up an instrument to measure the wind (direction or strength, or both). As someone who has always idolized the Wright Brothers, especially Wilbur, I love this photograph. It immediately brought to my mind Howard Roark. The self-confidence, intelligence, purposefulness, the tall, thin, angular body type.

To me Wilbur Wright was Howard Roark.

Now I understand the name you use on the forum. :D

If you are such a Wright Brothers enthusiast you probably are aware of these photographs that the Wright Brothers took, but just in case not here is a pointer.

You might find this site interesting if you haven't visited it already. It contains quite a bit of information and history on them including an interview.

Thanks, that interview was odd, but interesting. The Library of Congress has recently made much of the papers of the Wright Brothers available on the internet. It's interesting to read their letters to family members and others, like Octave Chanute, Arch Hoxsey, etc.
