Wright Brothers Day, In the News, and Enjoy

Wright Brothers Day - Today is Wright Brothers Day!

Wright Brothers Day is a United States national observation. It is codified in the US Code, and commemorates the first successful flights in a heavier than air, mechanically propelled airplane, that were made by Orville and Wilbur Wright on December 17, 1903, near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.

On September 24, 1959 U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower declared December 17th to be Wright Brothers Day.

Wright Brothers Day has recently been announced as an official commemorative day in Ohio, on October 5, 2011, celebrating 100 years of practical flight for the Wright Brothers.
