COUNTING DOWN TO DECEMBER 17, 2003

Quick - without looking it up - what's significant about
December 17, 2003? If your immediate answer isn't that it's the
100th anniversary of powered flight as first demonstrated by the
Wright Brothers, hopefully that will change. Just check out:

http://www.centennialofflight.gov

The US Centennial of Flight Commission has launched this Web site
to get the word out on the history and future of powered flight
and keep track of events planned to celebrate the upcoming
anniversary. The site also features a section dedicated to
educational activities and programs related to the past, present
and future of flight.
