Today is National Aviation Day! How will you celebrate Aviation? In 1939, President Franklin D. Roosevelt declared an entire day to the development of aviation. August 19th, the date picked by Roosevelt was decided upon because it is Orville Wright’s (of the Wright Brothers) birthday. Their contributions to flight set the foundation to Aviation as we know it.
So, grab your Jeti (or whatever you may fly), your favorite model, and go give aviation one – or two – giant thumbs up!
Here are some more ideas on how to celebrate by NASA.
