National Aviation Day!

I realized, too late, that yesterday was National Aviation Day, so, we're going to celebrate it today!

August 19, Orville Wright’s birthday, was designated by Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939 as National Aviation Day. You can read the standard aviation histories found in 629.13 or in the 3M ebook, Lords of the Sky Fighter Pilots and Air Combat, from the Red Baron to the F-16 by Dan Hampton.

You may enjoy this survey of flying machines gathered from newsreels of the past:
