Today, December 17, 2010, marks the 107th birthday of the greatest gadget of all. The first flight of the Wright Brothers at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. It only lasted 12 seconds. But it was the most famous flight of all. Of course we’ve come a long way since then. Technology has improved and advanced the airplane industry to create super jumbo planes, unmanned aerial vehicles, Air Force predator planes, the space shuttle and even the toy remote control planes. Congratulations Orville and Wilbur Wright!!
