National Aviation Day

Today, August 19, is National Aviation Day in the U.S.

In 1939, FDR established this holiday – the birthday of Orville Wright – to promote interest in aviation.

The web site of the Engineers’ Club of Dayton, OH has a 6.5 minute video of snippets from some of the early flights by the Wright Brothers -- see
