In 1922 The Wright Brothers invented the first plane in the world. They were born in 1891 and were from Washington but they moved to New York when they were young. They loved building and creating things from their imagination since the age of 12 and their mother said they would be great inventors in the future. They went to Columbia University when they were both 18 and shortly after they came up with the idea of making a plane. They were so fast at planning and making it that it only took them 2 months! When everyone heard about it they put it to the test but only one of them could go on it. To honour them they built a statue in Washington.
