Welcome to Wright “B” Flyer

As of March 20, 2020 the Wright “B” Flyer, Inc. Hangar/Museum is closed until further notice to comply with Ohio Governor Mike Dewine’s mandatory Covid-19 pandemic quarantine orders.  The WBF museum does not fit into any of the established exemptions.  We are closed to the public and to all volunteer activities at the hangar, including executive board and board of trustees meetings.  When the quarantine is lifted and we have cleaned and disinfected the hangar and museum we will notify you that we are again open.  Stay safe, stay healthy. 


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’re building a new one to ensure our mission continues for the next generation. And we’ll complete it in the factory that produced the original Wright B Flyers more than a century ago.

Wilbur and Orville Wright built America’s first airplane factory in Dayton in 1910. The Model B was its first product. Our plane, nicknamed the “Brown Bird,” is a Model B lookalike built to modern standards with modern materials and components. Our new airplane will also be a modern lookalike.

Learn how you can help us build our new airplane. Or visit us at Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport (KMGY) Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, 9am-2:30pm, Admission is free!
