  • First successful flight

    "115 years ago today Orville and Wilbur Wright made the first successful flight in history, staying aloft 12 seconds and traveling 120 feet." USA Today. Note: Orville piloted the gasoline-powered, propeller-driven biplane near Kitty Hawk, NC.

    My, oh my, what a long way we have come since then!

    And the pace of progress was so very quick, compared to many other areas of progress. I'm glad I was able to fly into Kitty Hawk and walk through the monument area.

      Yes, that is an amazing feeling to fly into that site and visit.
