KETTERING BUG

KETTERING BUG HISTORY

 

The Kettering Bug was an experimental unmanned air vehicle designed and built in 1918 by Charles Kettering, Wilbur Wright, Henry Ford, Elmer Sperry, and Ralph DePalma. The Kettering Bug was successfully test flown just prior to the end of World War I.

KETTERING BUG DESIGN AND BUILD

 

Almost 100 years later, this full-size replica of Kettering Bug designed and built by Joe Bok and his Aero Telemetry Team. The background and technical details of the Kettering Bug were meticulously researched for historical accuracy and re-designed with many of the same materials and techniques that were used to build the original.
