Today is National Aviation Day and as a honorary member of NATA I want to thank everyone involved in aviation for what they do!
This holiday was established in 1939. It’s also Orville Wright’s birthday. If you don’t know who he is, him and his brother Wilbur were the guys who flew an airplane at Kitty Hawk.
That plane was called the Wright Flyer and boy oh boy were they ever right (get the pun?) about flying. It’s a lot of fun. I should know because my book launch on August 30th is all about going for a ride in Marc Hightower’s 1927 Waco biplane.
So Happy National Aviation Day everybody! And remember to give a great big Missy Barrett style hey hello and thank you to anyone you know that works in the airplane business from flying to building to everything!
