Today we celebrate all those aviators that have led to our advancement in air travel and even into space. The day was created by President F. D. Roosevelt in 1939 to honor Orville Wright who was born August 19th, 1871. (Bet that didn’t make Wilbur very happy).

If you think about the world of flight it really is amazing that we have come so far in such a short time considering the belief that man was never meant to fly.
