On the morning of Dec. 17, 1903, brothers Wilbur and Orville Wright successfully launched the world's first flight of a powered airplane. They reached this milestone after years of planning, research, and a lot of perseverance. Orville piloted the first flight that lasted just 12 seconds and traveled 120 feet. On the fourth and final flight of the day, Wilbur traveled 852 feet, remaining airborne for 59 seconds. That morning, the brothers became the first people to demonstrate sustained flight of a heavier-than-air machine under the complete control of the pilot. On Wright Brothers Day, we commemorate this achievement and celebrate the spirit of #innovation that propelled the Wright Brothers to pursue this dream. #Airpower Seymour Johnson AFB United States Air Force
