Latest Look Panos First Flight

 

Since we were in the area we took some time to go by the historic site where the Wright brothers first conquered powered flight...

On the far left is the "hangar" that the brothers used.  It is from a point near there that they launched.  Moving across from left to right there are three stone markers that indicate the first three flights they took.  None of which were long enough to qualify the attempts as a true success.  However, there is a fourth marker waaay to the right... and it was that fourth flight that guaranteed their place in history.

There's a thirty minute history lesson given several times a day by the volunteers... if you stop by the site, it's worth every second to listen to them tell the condensed story.
