Events Planned for Wright Flight Anniversary

Dec 12, 2013 No Comments by

Next week, the 110th anniversary of the Wright brothers’ successful powered flight at Kitty Hawk, N.C., will be celebrated with several events at the Wright Brothers National Memorial.

The First Flight Society is hosting a public ceremony on Tuesday, from 8:30 a.m. until noon, with a band concert, a flyover of military and civilian aircraft, and various speeches and tributes. The Society also is hosting a dinner on Monday night and a luncheon on Tuesday, which are open to the public, but reservations are required.

The Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum also recently published a 3-D version of the original Wright Flyer online.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
