ANSWER from Wilbur Wright
on 26 October 2005:
The aeroplane was needed for several reasons. The practical one was that it would open up new worlds of transportation, cargo moving, and so on. But the other reason was, it was a challenge, like going to the moon would be 60 years later; it fed the world's dreams.
