Celebrating The Wrights (100 Years)

Tue Jan 28, 2003 7:22 am

I saw a subject about going to this years Paris air show (good idea).
Now I'm just asking for information about what else will happen this year.
After all, it is 100 years since the brothers started it all.
I'm sure there must be a lot of celebrations/air shows all over the world this
year just to celebrate this fact.
So, any info on air shows (particularly in Europe), celebrating 100 years of
flying is highly appreciated.
As a starter, there is the air show at Coventry, England at the end of May
(including airliners that can make a strong man weep).

But surely, there must be some great celebration somewhere in december
(when the Wrights finally got it up (the aircraft that is)).
Cheers, Janne.
