Because you only get to celebrate #onthisday moments for one day, here's one more from @wrightbrosnps in North Carolina. I was on a Meet the Robinsons kick that week, so I'm pretty sure I was telling Orville, "Keep moving forward!" #wrightbrothersnationalmemorial #wrightbrosnps #findyourpark #encuentratuparque #nationalparkgeek #notsojuniorrangers #explorelearnprotect #obxnc #visitnc

“I like to think about it now; I like to think about that first airplane the way it sailed off in the air at Kill Devil Hills that morning, as pretty as any bird you ever laid your eyes on. I don’t think I ever saw a prettier sight in my life.” —First Flight witness John Daniels describing the day Wilbur and Orville Wright changed the world forever at 10:35 am on December 17, 1903. ✈️✈️ . . Happy 114th anniversary of the First Flight. Will and Orv, it was a pleasure to share your story this past summer. #firstflight #wrightbrothers #wrightbrosnps #lovemyjob

The USS Ponce (LPD 15) comes to Ohio. After achieving flight at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, in 1903, the Wright Brothers began flying back home at Huffman Field (a farm pasture they rented from Torrence Huffman). By 1905 they had perfected the airplane they first flew at Kitty Hawk in 1903, thus Huffman Field. Their house used to be on Hawthorne St, but was moved by Henry Ford to Michigan. Today Dayton maintains the house site.

On Sunday, December 17, 2017, the @firstflightsociety and the @nationalparkservice will continue the tradition of honoring the accomplishments of Wilbur and Orville Wright at the 114th anniversary celebration of the first heavier-than-air, controlled, powered flight. The event takes place at the tent area south of the Wright Brothers National Memorial Visitor Center parking area. Scheduled events for the day include: 8:30 a.m. – The observance begins with a patriotic musical prelude by the Northeastern High School Band from Elizabeth City, NC. 8:45 a.m. – The formal program will commemorate the Wrights’ achievement. Arthur Lamothe, President of the First Flight Society, will open the program; the Civil Air Patrol, NC and VA Wings will present the colors; Northeast Academy for Aerospace and Advanced Technology will lead the pledge of allegiance; Graham Outten will lead the National Anthem; and NPS Superintendent David Hallac will welcome guests. Joseph Vazquez, Major General of the Civil Air Patrol and Director of the First Flight Society will introduce the program’s keynote speaker - Brigadier General James R. Cluff, US Air Force, Vice Commander 25th Air Force Joint Base San Antonio-Lakeland Texas. Dr. Tom Crouch, @smithsonian Senior Curator of Aeronautics, will induct Elrey Borge Jeppesen into the First Flight Society’s Paul E. Garber’s First Flight Shrine. Elrey Borge Jeppesen is an aviation pioneer whose "little black book" of notes and hand-drawn diagrams grew into the Jeppesen Airway Manual, which is known and trusted by pilots all over the world. Darrell Collins, former NPS Historian, will speak on Wright brothers’ achievement on December 17, 1903, and preside over the wreath-laying ceremony, which is conducted by descendants of the witnesses of the first flight to honor the Wright brothers. 10:35 a.m. – An aviation flyover by the United States Air Force will pay tribute to the Wright brothers at the documented exact moment of the Wrights’ first flight (weather dependent). The temporary visitor center opens at 9:00 a.m. Park rangers will provide 15-25 minute interpretive talks at 1:00, 2:00, 3:00 & 4:00 p.m. #obx #wrightbrosnps #wrightbrothers

Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills, NC. Orville and Wilbur lived and tested their aircraft late summer thru autumn of 1901, 1902 & 1903 in what was then called Kitty Hawk. Fun facts: the memorial is on a hill that used to be a sand dune. They walked their prototypes up that dune 1000s of times, but the first and subsequent flights took place on the flat field below the dune, on a thin steel rail they constructed because the sand was too mushy. They lived and worked in two wood shacks yards away from the testing site. They flew four times their first successful day and then the plane was caught by a gust of wind, rolled and was damaged beyond repair. __________ #wrightbrothers #nc #killdevilhills #firstinflight #theouterbanksnc #wrightbrosnps

"Some day Congress will erect a monument here to these Wrights." Byron R. Newton, 1908 In 1908, five years after the historic first flight at Kitty Hawk, the Wright Brothers returned to the Outer Banks to test a new version of their airplane. Reporters hid nearby to watch the brothers fly. Reporter Byron R. Newton's prediction about the Wrights came true 19 years later when Congress established the area as a national memorial. #WrightBrothers #FindYourPark #quotable #qotd #wrightbrosnps #obx #outerbanks

What kind of living conditions would you live in to achieve your dreams? “The sea has washed and the wind as blown millions and millions of loads of sand up in heaps along the coast, completely covering houses and forests.” -Orville Wright to his sister, October 14, 1900 #wrightbrosnps #wrightbrothers #outerbanks #obx

“History is like a mirror, it can only look back, but there is great value in pausing to look back for only with a great appreciation of where we have been can we ever hope to understand where we are headed.” - Neil Armstrong • • Reflect on the moments that have shaped your life, where are you headed? #wrightbrosnps #nps #history #obx #outerbanks #wrightbrothers

From the moon 48 years ago, the world watched as Neil Armstrong declared, "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”. 🌕 July 20, 1969, just 66 years after the Wright brother’s historic flight at Kitty Hawk, a large crowd gathered at the Wright Brothers National Memorial to view this historic event live on television as Apollo XI landed on the surface of the moon. As Neil Armstrong stepped on the lunar surface he carried with him in his Personal Preference Kit a small piece of fabric and wood from the original 1903 Wright Flyer. If you watched the lunar landing, what memories do you have? Where do you think we will go next? 🚀 #lunarlanding #nasa #moon #outerbanks #obx #wrightbrosnps #wrightbrothers #space #neilarmstrong

"The rain has descended in such torrents as to make a lake for miles about our camp.” Orville Wright wrote in a letter to his sister Katharine in 1903. With all of the recent rain in the Outer Banks, we seem to have our own puddles that seem like lakes forming!

On this day in 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft.

#DYK today is National Aviation Day? Although I haven't had a chance to visit during my current @theouterbanksnc trip, @wrightbrosnps is one of my favorite @nationalparkservice @goparks memorials because it captures such a monumental feat for mankind: FLIGHT! I visited this landmark when I was a kid and remembered being in complete awe. I have returned with my own children to share this great achievement by Wilbur & Orville. My kids enjoyed running from stone to stone to see if they could "fly" as fast as the Wright Brothers aircraft! So much rich aviation history here in the Outer Banks. . . . #goparks #iloveobx #loveobx #explorenc #visitnc #scenicobx #outaboutnc #obxphotos #obx #nationalpark #wrightbrothers #wrightbros #wrightbrothersmemorial #wrightbrosnps #obxnow #aviation #aviationlovers #aviationgeek #kittyhawk #kittyhawknc #killdevilhills #killdevilhillsnc
