The Wright Brothers would be amazed...

...To see how far aviation has come today! 
"The first flight by Orville Wright, of 120 feet (37 m) in 12 seconds, was recorded in a famous photograph. In the fourth flight of the same day, Wilbur Wright flew 852 feet (260 m) in 59 seconds. The flights were witnessed by three coastal lifesaving crewmen, a local businessman, and a boy from the village, making these the first public flights and the first well-documented ones." -from Wikipedia
The Wright brothers....a picture of determination and creativity. We can learn alot from them about keeping on even when it's extremely difficult and practicing over...and over.

Remember the first Sun n' Fun post? Well here are some pictures from when the acrobatic pilots flew. The difference in the clouds is neat to observe, as the storm would keep coming closer and then go farther away and so on. The dark clouds definitely made the details stand out better. [smile] Enjoy!
