Wright Brothers Anniversary

Jon Matcho

Recommended Posts

Exactly 111 years ago today the Wright Brothers made human powered flight official in a short, but incredible, 12-second flight.  That might not sound impressive, but imagine a time when this had never been done, and on flat land, counting out 12 long seconds...


Their airplane?  A homebuilt canard-pusher aircraft.


Also of note is that exactly 11 years ago today, the Canard Zone was launched.  Coincidence?  Yes, but also total cosmic convergence?  Indeed!
