1905 – The Wright brothers pilot the Wright Flyer III in a new world record flight

The Wright Flyer III was the third powered aircraft by the Wright Brothers, built during the winter of 1904–05.

On October 5th, 1905 Wilbur made a circling flight of 24 miles (38.9 km) in 39 minutes 23 seconds, over Huffman Prairie, longer than the total duration of all the flights making a  new world record.

The Flyer III had an airframe of spruce construction with a wing camber of 1-in-20 as used in 1903, rather than the less effective 1-in-25 used in 1904.

The refurbished Flyer  had seats for a pilot and passenger, equipped with upright control levers and installed one of their new 35-horsepower in-line vertical engines.

Extra Note: To keep their knowledge from falling into competitors’ hands, the Wrights disassembled the airplane to hide it.
