17, 1903 that Orville and Wilbur Wright, bicycle mechanics from Dayton, Ohio, achieved the feat of powered, controlled flight. It would be nearly three years before anyone else in the world was able to duplicate the achievement. Even so, few knew of the brothers flights, partly due to their extreme secretiveness- they feared unscrupulous competitors would steal their ideas.

As a result, little publicity attended the Wright brothers and their airplane. But word got out.Taking off from the Ft. Myer parade field, the Flyer headed south to where the Masonic Temple now stands in Alexandria, turned around and climbed to a record 400 feet, and then went into a gradual descent to pick up speed for the sprint back to Ft. Myer. They crossed the finish line at a blistering 42 mph. President Taft was on hand to congratulate the brothers for their astonishing achievement. The Army had just bought themselves an airplane.

Over the next century the airplane would revolutionize war, but even at the beginning there were those who foresaw that things had changed dramatically and irreversibly. Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone, said simply that the airplane made armies an impertinence and battleships so much junk. Time would test his judgments.
