Click here for today’s feature:

On this day in 1903, an event lasting only 12 seconds occurred on a lonely beach in North Carolina. Within just a few years, this incident would prove to change the world. This feature with the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s Dr. Peter Jakab reports on two Christian brothers who demonstrated what hard work and a little imagination could produce.

My favorite book about the Wright brothers is: Miracle at Kittyhawk: Letters of Wilbur and Orville Wright.  DaCapo Press republished this book in 2002 and is available through Amazon.com.
