In the U.S., December 17th is Wright Brothers Day.  It honors the brothers’ first successful flight in 1903.  The brothers, Orville and Wilbur, are the first to receive credit for building an aircraft with steering controls.  Thus, the Wright Brothers Day is in observance nationally since 1963.  Also, the December 17th date is shared with the Pan American Aviation Day.  To honor the brothers, First Flight stamps were issued in 2003 at the United States Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio.  Also, there’s a memorial tower on top of Kill Devil Hill, NC, in dedication to the brothers.  Lastly, although their efforts paved the way for modern day aeronautics, their status as inventors of the airplane continues to be an issue of debate.
