On this day in history, the most significant thing happened…the inaugural flight at Kitty Hawk by the Wright Brothers. The plane, a gasoline-powered propellor number, stayed in the air 12 seconds and travelled 120 feet. That was 1903.
The History channel has a cool feature where you can see what happened on YOUR birthday. Check it out.
Of note, others who share my birthday include Humphrey Davy who discovered laughing gas, actress Milla Jovovitch and publishing czar Bob Guccione.
