Orville and Wilbur Wright were brothers living in Dayton, Ohio. The two had started making bicycles during the 1890s and had a successful small business selling their Wright Specials for $18 each ($475 in today’s green). This experience with building light, strong machines would prove valuable in the coming years after the brothers’ interest turned to flight.
Others in the United States were also developing aircraft at the time the Wright brothers started turning their curiosity skyward. Samuel Langley had flown an unmanned steam-powered aircraft in 1896. Octave Chanute and others were flying gliders near Chicago late in the decade as well. But it wasn’t until the Wright brothers started working on the matter that the “flying problem” would finally be solved.
Beginning in 1899, the brothers designed and built a series of gliders to test their various ideas on a flying machine. They constructed a wind tunnel that allowed them to test designs without having to build a full-size model. They even built their own gasoline-powered motor for their aircraft.
首要，阅览语段内⽆无明显转机，使得写Despite A, B … 或 While A, B… 这样的句型成为不可能。对于这种同向类型的语段总结，同样需求明确这三件事情，即 Who Did What。咱们能够看出，榜首部分在介绍怀特兄弟早年年阅历，及这些阅历对后期创造飞机模型的奠基效果，第二部分写其同时代的人所做的研讨及效果，第三部分写怀特兄弟的壮举。由此，咱们能够挑选从怀特兄弟的壮举开始写起，逐渐增加之前的信息，使得咱们写的语段信息完好，且杰出其要点— 即怀特兄弟的划时代的打破。
Starting from 1899, the Whites’ brothers devised various specialized devices to test their ideas on flying and put them into application;
Their genius coupled with their early contact with special materials help them beat their contemporaries and became the ground breakers in flying.
此部分是在总结前两段信息，其间 Coupled with their early contact with special materials help them beat their contemporaries 就已将榜首二段要点信息总结彻底。
