D’oh! Wright Brothers’ Plane Flies Backwards on New Ohio License Plate

Governor DeWine showed off the new license plate design Thursday featuring the Wright Brothers’ plane. He said the design of the plates “reflects the state’s diversity of where people live in both cities, and in rural areas.”

The problem is that the banner which is designed to be seen as flying behind the plane is attached to the front.

The smaller end of the plane, that is the front, is the horizontal stabilizers. Those stabilizers control the plane’s pitch.

“We are aware that the plane on the new Ohio license plate unveiled this morning was oriented in the wrong direction,” The Ohio BMV said in a statement. “We regret this mistake and have fixed the image.”

Ohio will recycle the 35,000 plates that had already been printed. Inmates at Lebanon Correctional Institution started making the plates earlier this month.
