Today is the anniversary of the first sustained controlled flight of a manned powered aircraft.
In 2003, on the 100th anniversary of the day that Orville and Wilbur Wright first flew their Flyer, I noted that it kicked of a century off Death and Destruction.
Face it. Airplanes kill people.
Also, how long did the Wrights work on their aircraft? They went from a bicycle shop to the first ever flight in a lot less time than it took to design and build the F-22 Raptor.
