Tomorrow is National Aviation Day

Tomorrow is set aside as National Aviation Day in the United States.  August 19 was chosen as a day to honor the development of aviation because it is the birthday of one of our great early aviators, Orville Wright.

As my own contribution to National Aviation Day, I would like to invite you to read my tribute to some folks who do some amazing work in the air today - Hurricane Hunters.  Here's the link to the article I wrote about them:  Hurricane Hunters - Heroes Flying into the Eye of the Storm

There's a place for your comments near the end of the article.  Why not take a moment to add your own note of thanks to these modern day aviation heroes?
