When we realized that Wilbur and his brother were being released in the same cohort, we had to name them after another famous pair of siblings– Wilbur and Orville Wright, first in flight. This is the first time two brothers have been released in the same cohort in Big Sur. Wilbur is the goofier of the pair – when he catches a glimpse of himself in the two-way reflective mirror in the flight pen, he can't resist flying over to check himself out.
