One hundred and nine years ago the Wright brothers had the first motorized flight, piloted by Orville and lasting 12 seconds.
It is remarkable to think how far the field of aviation has come in 109 years. Anyone brave enough to make predictions for where we will be in another 109 years?
My local airport is having a facebook photo contest to commemorate the momentous occasion.
Please consider voting as many of the photos feature birds instead of airplanes, in fact the photo currently in the lead is of a seagull!
My photo is currently in second place and illustrates the amount of work that goes into making flight possible....
You can vote for several photos so lets try to get the photos that actually feature airplanes ahead of all the bird photos!
(I believe you have to like the airport facebook page before you can vote)
