First Flight

“Activities to mark the Wright brothers’ historic first flight from Big Kill Devil Hill take place on Tuesday and will likely be the last inside the Centennial Pavilion at the national memorial.

The First Flight Society and National Park Service coordinate the events at the site of Orville Wright’s historic heavier-than-air powered flight that took place on Dec. 17, 1903.

Entrance fees at the Wright Brothers National Memorial are waived for the duration of Tuesday’s events.”
