(KSL News) -- A very old, and new, plane took off this weekend during Mount Pleasant's annual fly-in: A replica of the 1905 Wright Brothers flyer.

It was built by engineering students from the Utah State University in celebration of the 100-th anniversary of the Wright Brothers first flight back in 1903.

This same replica made its first flight back in March in Wendover.

This weekend, former US Senator Jake Garn took control of the pilot's seat.
