It was on December 17, 1903 at Kitty Hawk that the Wright Brothers first successfully flew their powered aircraft flyer. This flyer, when unoccupied, weighed 605 pounds.

In comparison, one of the more popular passenger airplanes of our times is the Boeing 737-800 which, when empty, weighs a grand total of 90,710 pounds.

So after doing the math, it becomes apparent then one Boeing 737-800 is the same weight as 149.93 Wright Brothers planes. Let's just round it up to 150 flyers and call it a day for this fact.

Added bonus fact: the heaviest airplane in the world is the Antonov An-225 which weighs around 628,317 pounds when empty.

In other words, the world's largest plane weighs as much as 6.92 Boeing 737s. That's frickin' enormous. That's equal to the weight of a 1038 Wright Brothers planes.
