And that’s a wrap! Come see the 1903 Wright Flyer reproduction during the Grand Reopening of the Wright Brother Visitor Center tomorrow! The ribbon cutting ceremony begins at 9:30 am and it is a fee free day! The 1903 Wright Flyer reproduction was a generous gift to the American People from Harry B. Combs prominent pioneer airman, Aviation leader, and published author. It was presented to the National Park Service on December 17, 2003 during the First Flight Centennial. #firstflight #wrightflyer #wrightbrosnps #wrightbrothers #obx

Just 49 years ago, on July 20, 1969 Wright Brothers National Memorial was open at night for the first time in its history so people could be at the site of man's first powered flight to watch the first man walk on the moon. Tiki torches were lit around the First Flight Boulder that marked the spot Orville Wright had first taken world’s first flight on December 17, 1903. Just 66 years after the first flight, television sets were set up on the patio at the visitor center as hundreds of people gathered to watch history being made to see NASA Astronauts land on the moon. Astronaut Neil Armstrong in his pocket carried a small piece of wood and a piece of fabric from the original 1903 Wright Flyer. The following excerpt is from a newspaper article about the event that appeared in the July 25, 1969 edition of The Coastland Times: When the lunar module "Eagle" landed on the moon at 4:18 Sunday afternoon, some clapped and cheered. But it was different Sunday night. Quiet darkness crept around the memorial and the moon was a hazy crescent in the black night. The crowd was silent when Armstrong stepped onto that strange silver globe. A voice from 240,000 miles away broke the silence. "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind," Armstrong said. #lunarlanding #findyourpark #nationalmoonday #obx #wrightbrosnps #neilarmstrong

On December 17, 1928, the First Flight Boulder was dedicated. Notable aviators attended the dedication including Amelia Earhart. #wrightbrothers #wrightbrosnps #northcarolina

There are so many activities to choose from when in the Outer Banks, that the options can seem overwhelming. A person can go jet skiing, fishing🎣, hang gliding, or enjoy a simple walk on the beach🏖. When Orville and Wilbur were here experimenting with their gliders and their flying machine they also took the time to explore. They walked the beaches and blazed forest trails🌲, documenting their discoveries on film. What will you find in the #greatoutdoors when you visit? #findyourpark #obx #wrightbrosnps #wrightbrothers #optoutside #nps Photo Credits: Wilbur and Orville Wright/National Archives [Photo 1 is a close up of a crab on a sand background.] Two black and white photos.

After you see where the #firstflight happened, see it from a new perspective. Come see a sculpture that recreates the historic 1903 flight. This bronze and stainless steel, life-sized flyer is a perfect way to get yourself pictured in the event and a great way to top off an amazing visit to Wright Brothers National Memorial. Will you help launch the flyer with Wilbur or help fly the Flyer with Orville? #obx #wrightbrosnps #nps NPS Photo [image description: Long metal rail laying in sand going forward from viewer to bronze/steel sculpture of vintage aircraft with 2 spinning propellers and bi-wing configuration with pilot laying down next to a small engine all heading into the sun with a coated and hat wearing gentleman helping launch the plane.]

The field of #aviation✈ has changed in ways Orville and Wilbur Wright may have never imagined. One such advancement is passenger travel. That's not to say the Wrights never thought passenger travel would happen, but the scale might surprise them. On May 14, 1908, 110 years ago, Wilbur made history again when he took his friend and mechanic Charley Furnas for a short ride. Why was this a historic event? Because Charley was the first ever passenger to fly in a plane! Compare the passenger accommodations of the Wrights’ plane next the largest passenger plane in the world, the Airbus A380. The 1905 Flyer 3 had room for two💺💺. Depending on the configuration, the A380 has room for 525 to 853 passengers! How do you think air travel will change in the next 110 years? #findyourpark #onthisday #wrightbrosnps #flying #aviation Image 1 📸 Credit: National Archives Image 2 📸Credit: ©Mark Power / Magnum Photos ​

Any #Avengers out there? Wright Brothers National Memorial has a missing member of your party. This E-2C Hawkeye appears to be searching for the rest of his team! Hawkeye has proved difficult to catch so we recommend sending your best to pick him up, Hulk would probably work. The skies here are full of surprises. What will you see when you visit? #findyourpark #avengersinfinitywar #nps #wrightbrosnps

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.

"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

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

#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
