This site was created by the National Park Service, United States Air Force, and others to celebrate the Centennial of Flight - the 100th anniversary of the first successful air flight by the Wright brothers on December 17, 1903. Here you can find photographs, articles, and videos that detail the history of civilian and military aviation in the United States in the last hundred years, and information on how aviation technology has shaped current American culture. Using the �Map� feature, users can also read about the historical contributions of each state to this technology, and the �List of Sites� link will take visitors to the general database of articles within the site. This resource would be an important supplement to any course syllabus on the history of aviation and air power for its thorough coverage and intriguing videos and images.
