The Birthplace of Flight

Last week, the Red Canoe crew paid a visit to the Wright Brothers National Memorial just outside Kitty Hawk North Carolina.
The inventors chose the isolated location on the outer banks because of the strong, constant winds. The guys at Red Canoe tested the validity of this claim with a few days of intense, on-site research. Kite surfing.

The Memorial is the largest monument in the country ever built to a living person (Orville attended its dedication in 1932.) The Canadians pay homage.
