National Aviation Day 2014
Today, August 19, 2014, on what would have been Orville Wright’s 143rd birthday, we celebrate National Aviation Day.
In the immortal words of Drake:
“Started from the bottom….
now we’re here.”
So thank you Orville and Wilbur for being aerospace pioneers and giving us the ability to travel from Cincinnati to Los Angeles in a few hours whenever I have the money to do so.
