The Planes of Fame Air Museum in Chino, California, will present a detailed examination of documentary footage shot of the Wright brothers at Fort Myer, Virginia, in 1909, successfully demonstrating the world’s first military airplane Jan. 22.
After extensive research and editing, the footage for the first time reveals this momentous event as it actually happened. Paul Glenshaw, director of the Discovery of Flight Foundation and an independent creative consultant specializing in aviation history, will present the footage.
The film’s research, analysis and re-editing was done by Glenshaw, who will make the presentation. He is the co-producer of the award-winning PBS documentary “Barnstorming.” He is a lecturer on the Wright brothers, curator of several exhibits for the Wright Brothers National Memorial and College Park Aviation Museum.
The presentation, which will run from 10 a.m. to noon, will be held in the museum’s theater.
