For the centennial of flight they tried to redo the Wright Bros. plane.
They had drawings and money and every other advantage.

If that's what you think, then you don't know the full story. They didn't
have the weather and the weather turned out to be quite important in the
original flights. Particularly the winds.

And we have "Bret Cahill", another source of failure, not available to the Wrights.

and the temperature or better stated, the resulting density altitude. IIRC
when they returned to Huffman prairie in Dayton the following summer their
first ~50 flight attempts also failed and they did not become airborne until
they developed their drop weight catapult.
