Tuesday, October 11th, 2022, was a beautiful day on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The sun was shining, and the wind provided the perfect conditions for flying kites.

Brightly colored assorted-shaped kites soaring high in the blue sky could be seen for miles as people approached the Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina.
The weather conditions seen yesterday are a standard on the Outer Banks, which drew the Wright Brothers to this strip of beach dunes back in 1903. The Wright Brothers achieved the first flight on the Wright Flyer on this very spot of the Outer Banks on December 17th, 1903.

With the kites flying so high in the blue sky, it was like a reminder that in one month, Friday, November 11th, 2022, Veterans Day will be celebrated at the Wright Brothers National Memorial. In addition, Veterans Day is a free admission day to the public, so mark your calendar today.
