Smithsonian showcases 3-D Wright Flyer exhibit
A new 3-D display of the Wright Flyer, credited as the airplane that achieved the first powered flight in December 1903 at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, has been added to the downtown Washington, D.C., campus of the Smithsonian Institution. The Wright Flyer was scanned using a 3-D laser, which produces a highly detailed and accurate image of the object. From that scan, a company called API Services created the 3-D model.
