Two ships of the United States Navy have been named USS Wright, the first named for Orville Wright, and second honoring both him and his brother Wilbur.
The first Wright (AV-1) was originally launched in 1920 an airship tender AZ-1, then converted to a seaplane tender and in use as such until 1944, then converted to the headquarters ship AG-79, renamed to San Clemente in 1945, and scrapped in 1946.
The second Wright (CVL-49) was a light aircraft carrier commissioned in 1947, converted to a command ship and recommissioned as CC-2 in 1962, and decommissioned in 1970.

 USS Clueless - Multidisculture
Wright's article is an important look into life in Saudi Arabia, because it makes clear just how pathological it has become.
Wright says that one of the arguments made against the theory that 15 of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudis was to say that Saudis weren't actually capable of doing such a thing – not, mind, because they were too high-minded or moral, but because it was beyond their abilities.
Wright fills in the other side of that coin: in terms of satisfying basic human emotional needs, Saudi society is even worse.

Several aviation historians attribute this technology developed by the Wrights to be one of the most significant milestones in aviation history.
Later, through experimentation with kites, gliders and a redesigned wind tunnel, the Wright brothers were able to design and build a wing that produced enough lift for a powered takeoff.
Ironically, the very success of the Wright brothers was a contributing factor, as fewer people were now relying on the sea to move goods.

 Birth of Carriers   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The Wright brothers succeeded almost exactly where Langley had failed because they knew the importance of control surfaces on the wings were critical to maintain any control of the craft in flight.
So unnatural was her appearance that she gave rise to the common Navy jargon for carriers, the flat top, and was nicknamed "The Old Covered Wagon" by sailors of the day.
Snubbed, the brothers grew to hate Langley and much of the government establishment to such an extent that after their deaths, their original plane was willed to a museum in Europe rather than the more appropriate Smithsonian where Langley was its director.
