Plane Go Boom

Another year, another Wright Flyer replica augering into a field. I recall hearing on a documentary for the 100th anniversary that it's genuinely dangerous to fly one of these things, not because it's hard to screw one together but because, well, it only barely flies. Apparently it's a much better idea to make a replica of their (as I recall) Mk IV or Mk V flyer, which incorporates significant advances in "not trying to kill you" - ness.
