HAPPY NATIONAL AVIATION DAY!!Â
Friday, August 19, is National Aviation Day, as observed each year on Orville Wright’s birthday. The commemoration was first proclaimed by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1939 in honor of the man who piloted the “first self-powered flight in history,” according to the original proclamation.
Thanks toÂ Jeanne MacPherson for passing this on. Now go out and take somebody for an airplane ride to celebrate!!
â€œWe were lucky enough to grow up in an environment where there was always much encouragement to children to pursue intellectual interests; to investigate what ever aroused curiosity.â€ Orville Wright
