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.
