History of Aviation and Horology

Post by koimaster » December 2nd 2019, 5:10pm

August 19th is National Aviation Day, celebrating the development of aviation. The holiday was established in 1939 by United States President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The day was picked as a celebration of Orville Wright’s birthday. Wright was alive at the time and lived for another nine years to see the day celebrated, unfortunately his brother, Wilbur, did not live to see the holiday.
Advent of Aviation

People have always had a curiosity towards flight and the sky. From kite flying in China several hundred years BC to Leonardo da Vinci’s designs in the 15th century and the invention of the hydrogen balloon in the 18th century. The hydrogen balloon would provide the lift and was able to support the weight of the structure and eventually people.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
