The Guniea Pig Conservation Demonstrations
The Guinea Pig
Engine in the Shop
Demonstration

This engine never powered an airplane, but what the Wrights learned from it powered their flying machines for the next ten years.

Step into the minds of Orville and Wilbur as they redesign their first engine.

On loan to the Wright Experience from the Engineer's Club of Dayton, the engine was disassembled and restored in the fall and winter of 2001-2002. Come into the workshop, follow the process and discover the secrets under the hood.
