Wright Brothers and Kitty Hawk, NC

wright-bros

The Wright Brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were American inventors and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building and flying the world’s first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier -than–air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904 -05, the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build and fly experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.  (from Wikipedia and www.cute-calendar.com)
