National Aviation Day

Contributor post by Alicia of AliciasFindings

National Aviation Day is in honor of the birthday of aviator Orville Wright. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were pioneer aviators in the United States. Orville was the first person to successfully fly an airplane. His first flight was December 17, 1903 at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. This inaugural flight was soon to change the skies forever. This special day was created by a presidential proclamation by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939.

Here at Christmas in July we want you to share any aviation items and the story behind it!

I have a gold-plated bangle in my shop with a really nice biplane. I love this style of plane.

I have created this cozy aviator hat and matching mukluks for all the aspiring pilots, or for babies of anyone in the aviation field. This set is also available with pink trim for any future Amelia Earhart’s out there! Guaranteed to keep baby warm during their first flight.

Flying! What an awesome experience to travel the globe in a matter of hours! Those Wright Brothers had a dream and made it happen. Today’s technology has provided us with such aircraft as the 747 and 787 Dreamliner! Wear a piece of aviation history in this amazing tie!
