The forgotten history of human flight


The American brothers Orville and Wilbur Wright were the first humans to fly in a powered flying machine. But that’s only part of the story. In this special rebroadcast we talk with National Book Award winner Martin Sandler about his book “Race through the Skies, The Week the World Learned to Fly.” It introduces us to the people, achievements and mishaps that introduced the world to the wonder of flight.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
