In the SCE airport there is a plaque with an inscription about a woman who witnessed this first flight. She and her parents had a house in Kill Devil Hills. Many years later she was visiting her grand daughter (who now lives in State College, PA) while they sat and watched the first moon landing and man walking on the moon. Amazing how in just almost seventy years this much advanced.
