Summary

In the first picture we see Mr. Wilbur Wright giving some of his wonderful exhibitions in Paris, and we get a good view at close range of the aeroplane as it is prepared for flight. Mr. Wright operates it himself, and we see him as he flies along the surface of the earth like a bird, and then rising to a height of 160 feet, where he passed under a line of balloons and wins the prize offered by the Aero Club de la Sarthe, Paris. Next we see him winning the Michelin cup for remaining in the air for two hours. Finally, there is an excellent view given of Mr. Wright and his aeroplane flying at a height of 700 feet and remaining at that tremendous altitude for two hours: a feat never before accomplished.
