Happy Anniversary of Powered Flight Day!

Category: RamblingsDaniel @ 6:10 am

wrightplane105 Years ago today (December 17, 1903), Orville and Wilbur Wright made the first sustained powered flights, so I say “happy anniversary to aviation!”  It’s amazing to think of all that we’ve accomplished in aviation in those short 105 years…  practically everyone has taken a commercial flight these days, we’ve been to the moon and back, and now I’M even a pilot!  It’s also hard to believe the first flight was only about 120 feet lasting about maybe 12 seconds, and we’ve come so far, so fast, ever since.  I tell ya, it’s great to be a part of such an amazing legacy!

Too bad it’s so darn cold and the weather so crappy in Chicago today otherwise I’d love to get up and fly on such a great anniversary!
