Wright Brothers, Wrong Design: Ohio's Oops On License Plate


  • Ohio's debut of its new license plate has failed to take off.
  • A banner depicted on the plate was attached to the wrong end of the Wright Brothers' historic first plane, the Wright Flyer.
  • The new license plate illustrates rays of sunlight beaming into the sky, with a banner that reads "Birthplace of Aviation" draped across the horizon.
  • But the banner, which should have been trailing behind the plane, was instead attached to its front.
  • After the unveiling, Ohio officials said in a statement that they were aware of the mistake and will fix it before the plates officially land on December 29.
  • Have you ever caught a major mistake during the grand unveiling of something? (or maybe on a billboard or in an advertisement)
