YES! It's August 19th, which only means one thing: it's
National Aviation Day (US) was established in 1939 by former U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt to commemorate the birthday of Orville Wright. Mr. Wright was still alive when this proclamation was issued and codified as (USC 36:I:A:1:118)
This day should not only be a federal holiday in the United States, but also a worldwide celebration of what the Wright brothers have brought to the world. The freedom to travel anywhere for a record number of hours. The science, the technology, and the industry.
Words can only go so far, so I will leave you with a bit of photo journalism which was shot near JFK yesterday.
How will you be celebrating your Aviation Day? Flying, hopefully!
