During the Nyenrode Reunion of October, 2018, Tom and I visited
Palm Springs Air Museum
We talked about David McCullough’s book on the Wright Brothers
Neil Armstrong took a fabric of the Wright Brothers 1903 Flyer
to the moon as a tribute to the Wright Brothers’ invention.
On July 20, 1969, when Neil Armstrong stepped onto the moon, he carried with him, in tribute to the Wright brothers, a small swatch of muslin from a wing of their 1903 Flyer.
