This Day in Past Aviation Events | 1/30/24

Hey WFC,

I’m sure we all know the Wright brothers by now who first took flight in Kitty Hawk. Well, those pilots, Orville and Wilbur don’t live forever for obvious reasons. So today, marks the 75th year that Orville has been gone from the Earth. He died from a sudden heart attack in Dayton, Ohio. If you would like to see more about him, his burial site is at Woodland Cemetery. Or, you can check out his biography: Orville Wright's Life Story - Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park (U.S. National Park Service)

(Picture was taken on December 20, 1943, while still in USAF)
