Thanks Wilbur, Thanks Orville

100 years ago today at Kittyhawk two regular guys did what scientists of their time said would take another thousand years to do. Thanks for all the good times you made possible.

I watched the PBS special on them last night. Some dudes built a a replica of a model B, and then crashed it. It was kind of funny. Very cool though.

There is a group out of Glenn Ellyn that built a replica. I attended an event at the museum of science and industry where they tried to fly it. The wind was calm and they failed. Later that week they crashed it in another attempt. It seems that flying that contraption was NOT easy.

I heard in the radio that they are going to do a recreation today at the same place the first flight happened.... it is going to be a politically heavy event and I think some heavy weigts will be there. Someone famous is doing a flyover.

One thing that is interesting about that is that the sister had as much to do with the whole thing as they did... I watched a whole thing in the history channel and it was quite interesting.
