First air cargo delivery re-enacted

Advanced ceramic matrix composite fabric and conceptual models of micro-aerial vehicles being developed by the Air Force Research Laboratory served as cargo aboard a Wright “B” Flyer during a Oct. 2, 2010 reenactment of the world’s first cargo flight. The original flight took place Nov. 7, 1910, and was made by Wright Company pilot Phil Parmelee in a Wright Model “B” when he flew 200 pounds of silk cloth from Huffman Prairie Flying Field (now part of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base) to Columbus, Ohio.
