Yah? So? They flew balloons. The funny thing about that article is the photo! The caption is obviously (to us here in Kitty Hawk) describing the famous photo of their first flight. The pic above the caption shows one of their gliders (no motor).

The photo at the top of this article is incorrect. That photo is of one of the Wrights gliders, not the famous "photo of the century" of the first flight on Dec 17, 1903.
