KMi researchers Dr Kevin Quick and Dr Peter Whalley have recently been collaborating with the American Aeronautical Society to help them make use of KMi's web based simulation of the Wright Brothers' famous Flyer.

Like many other organisations across the US, the AAS are developing a web site ready for the celebration in 2003 of the Wright Brothers' epic flight. The FirstFlight web site was developed as a test-bed for the creation of reusable multimedia components, but is also now at the top level of Yahoo and other search engines on the topic of flight history.
