Hydroplane Prototype

Today's picture shows Wilbur Wright and an early attempt he made to create a hydroplane. You can see he mounted his airplane on a canoe. The picture was taken in 1909. It is amazing how quickly things moved and evolved in the early days of aviation.

  1. Great photo. It's amazing how innovative those guys were.

    Today is "Black Friday." Instead of rushing to stand in line at Wal-Mart or Best Buy, we stay home and clean out our closets.

    We donate all of our unworn winter coats to charity - there are a number of "Buy Nothing Day" coat drives in our area.

    Everyone should do something for the less fortunate today.

    That's what the holidays are really about.
