To the Sky?
Aviation pioneer Einar Sem-Jacobsen's photographs from Norwegian and European aviation
circa 1909-1918

The 17th of December 2003 will mark the one hundred years that have passed since the Wright brothers took off from the surface of the Earth with the first flying machine. With a flight of 36.6 metres in the course of 12 seconds, the brothers flew into history. The exhibition To the Sky? is one of the contributions from the Norwegian Aviation Museum that celebrates 100 years of flight. We have taken the liberty to shift the focus from the Wright brothers in the USA - to Europe and Norway to look at what was happening here in the years after the first powered flight on wings in 1903.
