Taking a break from Pinups today to celebrate 111 years of flight! The Aviation world is celebrating THREE
anniversaries today, December 17th!
- Today in 1903 at Kittyhawk, North Carolina two brothers set aviation on a path that would lead 111 years to today with the first flight of the Wright Flyer I
- Exactly 32 years later, one of the most famous transports and airliners in aviation history took to the sky for the first time in 1935... the Douglas DC-3
! the DC-3 was a workhorse of World War 2 and the Airline world during the 1940s and many still fly today nearly.
- 28 years later in 1963, the Lockheed C-141 Starlifter
made it's first flight ushering in a new era of massive heavy lifting aircraft paving the way to the modern C-5 and C-17 transports of today.
This aviation piece is made up of four different photos blended together and then ran through a process to make them look painted and aged.
