We enjoyed learning about the Wright Brothers in more detail. Having been to Kitty Hawk/Kill Devil Hills, we now feel like the circle is complete. Our favorite site was the Huffman Prairie Flying Field. We were the only ones there on a cloudy Thursday morning, and it was wonderful. We could picture the Wrights out there experimenting in the relative quiet and solitude, and the site has probably not changed particularly from what it looked like in 1904-5. Flags are posted to give you the idea of the circular path the flights took and there is a reproduction of a hangar and catapult used in those early experiments. Go and immerse yourself in aviation history!
