December 17 is a historic day in aviation. In 1903, 106 years ago, the Wright brothers made their first flight. It was a monumental event then, but today their flight wouldn’t cover the distance from one wingtip on a Boeing 747 to the other. Their feat was pretty amazing and we honor their achievement, but today’s modern airliners just aren’t Orville and Wilbur’s airplane ...
