Today is Pan American Aviation Day

Today is Pan American Aviation Day

Pan American Aviation Day is observed annually on December 17 in the United States and falls on the same day as Brothers Wright Day, which is not surprising as both observances commemorate the same event.
On December 17, 1903 Orville and Wilbur Wright accomplished the first successful flight of a mechanically propelled heavier-than-air craft near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. This event is considered to be a pivotal milestone in the development of aeronautics which led to breakthrough developments. Pan American Aviation Day was declared by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt. It was first observed in 1940 and has been proclaimed every year since then. This observance focuses on stimulating interest in aviation in the American countries. Its ultimate goal is to contribute to the development of more rapid communications and cultural ties between the countries in the Western hemisphere. Pan American Aviation Day is not a public holiday therefore government offices, educational establishments, and businesses do not close on this day. However, schools often organize trips to aviation centers or museums and classroom activities devoted to the history of aviation. Source: anydayguide.com.

Today in History: First Flight around the World in 1924

Today in History: First Flight around the World in 1924

95 years ago today, the first flight around the world was completed by the Americans Lowell H. Smith and Erik H. Nelson: after 176 days (starting on April 6) they had covered some 25,180 miles (42,398 km) in 57 stages and landed where they initially took off, in Seattle, Washington. Before the two Americans, five other nations had attempted the circumnavigation of the globe but none of them completed their journeys. Originally, 4 American airplanes departed Seattle but only two of them completed the entire trip. In preparation for flight, The U.S. Navy helped deliver spare engines and thousands of gallons of fuel to various places around the world. The crews arrived back in the United States in early September and then made several stops in larger cities before returning to Seattle.
