Kitty Hawk & First Flight

In April 2017, we made a special pilgrimage to Kitty Hawk — where the Wright Brothers first accomplished heavier-than-air flight. With our friends Tom & June, we flew into the historic First Flight airstrip, which is part of the national monument park.

Flying into First Flight was so meaningful for Pilot Bob. And for Tom, who is a retired Navy navigator. June and I had both read David McCullough’s excellent book, “The Wright Brothers,” and it was wonderful to experience the book come to life.

Bob’s short video is below, showing our experience of flying in to this historic site. Thanks for looking! — Diana
