WILBUR WRIGHT. Partly Printed Check signed: "Wright Cycle Co./WW", 8½x3. Dayton, Ohio, 1905 January 3. Drawn on Winters National Bank, payable to William Tompert for $2.50. During 1904 and 1905, the Wrights built and tested new planes and engines. An improved Flyer II was flown near Dayton, Ohio in 1904. They began designing Flyer III. At Simms Station, Ohio, on October 5, 1905, Wilbur flew for 24 miles in 38 minutes, landing only when their new Flyer III gas tank ran dry. The Flyer III was powered by a 15 horse powered engine. This was the Wright brothers' first flight of more than a half hour and renewed their confidence in man's ability to sustain flight. They had invented the first fully practical airplane that could turn, bank, circle and fly figure eights. On May 30, 1912, Wilbur Wright died of typhoid fever at the age of 45. The "Co." in the signature has been completely removed by a cancellation hole. Bank pinching touches payee line, all intact. Folds, not at signature. Slightly creased. Overall, fine condition.
