American aviators Orville and Wilbur Wright were engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are credited with inventing, building and flying the world’s first successful airplane. The brothers only flew together once. Why?

Answer: They promised their father they wouldn’t fly together in case of a fatal crash. The only time they flew together, in front of friends and family in 1909, they did so with his express permission.
