100 years

A century ago, at 10:35am on December 17th, 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright launched the history of human flight when their heavier-than-air craft flew for twelve seconds. At 10:35am on Wednesday, December 17th, 2003, First Flight will be re-enacted at Kill Devil Hill, near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, on the outer banks. (Not so far from where we visited this summer.)

Chuck Yeager and Neil Armstrong will be participating in the festivities. Check out this neat page at startrek.com with info about the day's events.
