This is the airport where Orville Wright made the first ever flight on December 17, 1903 in an aircraft heavier than air and driven by an engine. During the flight that lasted 12 seconds a distance of 37 metres was covered. This translates into a speed of 10,9 kmh.

However, it is hard to believe that anyone of that group was able to even distantly imagine the progress that aviation will make in the next 100 years….
