First Flight

Can't believe I missed this, but Tuesday was the 99th anniversary of the Wright brothers flight, the first heaver-than-air, controlled aircraft. It's interesting to note that there was a government sponsored effort going on at the same time to develop powered flight, which was getting nowhere. Leave it to a pair of independent bicycle mechanics to revolutionize the world.
