The Wright Brothers are the most famous of Daytonians. Their achievements in inventing manned flight are indisputable. William Hazelgrove decided there was something about the Wrights narrative that didn't feel right to him. In his new book "Wright Brothers, Wrong Story - How Wilbur Wright Solved the Problem of Manned Flight" the author attempts to re-Wright and alter that narrative.

Listen to this interview and decide whether you agree with him.
