Come Visit Us

For a generation, Wright “B” Flyer Inc. has celebrated the legacy of the Wright brothers in Dayton, Ohio by flying and displaying a modern lookalike of their first production airplane—the Model B.  Now, we’ve finished building our latest lookalike Model “B” Flyer to ensure our mission continues for the next generation. Originally, we planned to complete this latest flyer in the very-same factory that produced the original Wright B Flyers more than a century ago. However, a devastating fire at the restoration site, required us to finish the build and follow-up testing at our current hangar on Springboro Road, in Miamisburg.

Wilbur and Orville Wright built America’s first airplane factory in Dayton in 1910. The Model B was its first product. Our first plane built at this hangar was nicknamed the “Brown Bird,”.

This latest build of the Model B is nicknamed the White Bird. It has been built to modern standards with modern materials and components.  

Learn how you can continue helping us to display as we tour with our newest airplane. Or visit us at Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport (KMGY)
10550 N. Springboro Pike,
Miamisburg, OH

Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, 9:00 am-12:30 pm, Admission is free!
