Wright Brother's National MemorialWright Brother's National MemorialFor years I’d been wanting to see the Wright Brothers National Memorial. I’m not quite sure why, but something about this windy, seaside monument always seemed a little romantic to me. I got a chance to visit when I flew down to the Outer Banks for a wedding on a beautiful and sunny early summer day. The Memorial is a National Park and features several exhibits about the Wright Brother’s historic flights, as well as full scale reproductions of their famous gliders and flying machines.
