Additional Details:
Here is the massive beacon tower on top at grass-covered Kill Devil Hill, where the Governor of North Carolina wants to place the original Wright airplane. It is now in England, sent there by Orville Wright, after the Smithsonian Institution refused to lable it as the first airplane capable of flight. Now, however, the Institution has finally admitted that the Curtiss plane-a rival-could not have been flown, thus paving the way for return of the precious relic to America.
