…and neither one of the Wright Brothers had a pilot’s license…  How f’ing cool must it have been to be one of the five folks who got to see this.  I’ll never forget the first time I was at the Air&Space in Washington, DC, and looked up to see this plane.  I just about peed all over myself.  Till I realized that right in front of me was the Command Module from Apollo.  I sure am glad there are still a bunch of folks who don’t listen to the rest of us tell them something can’t be done… 

"On December 17, 1903, at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, the 1903 Wright Flyer became the first powered, heavier-than-air machine to achieve controlled, sustained flight with a pilot aboard. It flew forward without losing speed and landed at a point as high as that from which it started. "
