Wild Blue Yonder

by

104 years ago today, two bicycle mechanics from Dayton Ohio made the first series of heaver than air flights at Kitty hawk, N.C.  Travel hasn’t been the same since.  Four years ago, at the Centennial, I had the honor of standing at the place where it was done.

When you’re stranded in Dallas by American Airlines this holiday season (as I may be before the week is up) you can address your colorful vocabulary towards Orville and Wilbur.  It’s all their fault.

    Good for you. That works on several levels.
    In Memphis, though, you’re never far from aviation, what with FedEx planes going over every two minutes.

    Yeah, and I work for an aviation company, but I try not to think about it.
