December 17: celebrating 112 Years of Aviation
Lottery winnings can be used towards many things. Some people dream of renovating their home, some fantasize about a certain luxury car, and most people probably think about traveling the world, too. Ever imagined how hard it would be to travel the globe without aviation? Tell us now: how far would you get?
December 17, 1903 changed humanity forever, when the Wright Brothers powered and sustained the first ever human flight. The ‘Wright Flyer I’ was built the same year from lightweight wood, with wooden propellers and a gasoline engine, which they built in their bicycle shop.
After many repairs and redesigning, the Wright brothers each flew their aircraft twice that day, through freezing winds of 27 mph. The four flights were witnessed by five people, including a government official and a teenage boy who lived nearby. Once the flights were over, the Flyer flipped many times over, which severely damaged it and caused it to never fly again.
Thankfully, the Wright brothers continued their contribution to aviation for the rest of their lives and many others joined to create and develop airplanes as we know them today. Now, all you have to do is win a hefty Mega Millions jackpot, pack your bags and fly off to travel to the far corners of our beloved earth! Or anywhere you’d like to travel – have it your way.
