Wright Brothers

Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina

Wright Brothers National Memorial - http://www.nps.gov/wrbr

The first successful sustained powered flights in a heavier-than-air machine were made here by Wilbur and Orville Wright on December 17, 1903. A 60-foot granite monument dedicated in 1932, is perched atop 90-foot tall Kill Devil Hill commemorating the achievement of these two visionaries from Dayton, Ohio.

Dayton, Ohio is my hometown. As a teenager I worked at Wright Patterson AFB to build homes for officiers.
