Oct 14, 2003 - Clow Airport

The mission of the Wright Redux Association, based in Glen Ellyn, IL, is to reproduce the 1903 Wright Flyer and fly it. No group has ever successfully built a working replica of the first-ever powered aircraft, although many have tried. Our objective is to build and fly our machine, Spirit of Glen Ellyn, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Wright Brothers first flight.

What have made this achievement possible are the generous contributions of many persons. The spirit of mid-western volunteerism has driven this project and is reflective of a key value of the turn-of-the-century when the Wright Brothers did their famous work.

After starting with a small but determined group in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, the list of volunteers and contributors has grown exponentially. See the partial list of significant contributors.
