Orville Wright

Recommended Posts

Orville taught my great grandfather (John C. Henning) how to fly in 1911. He is standing to the left of Naval officer (Captain Kenneth Whiting) in the second row. Orville is front row center with his hand in his pocket. Photo was taken in 1940.

growing up i had a piolet that lived next door - his piolets licensee was signed by Orville , i thought more of his daughters in those young years so i never quizzed him much , but he and his brother were barn stormers back in the day , he flew well into his 90s and used to fly my sister to oshkosh for breakfast up till he was 92 , i think i missed out .....but not entirely on his daughters , the 60s ............fond memories
