Fall is a great time to visit the Outer Banks. This October, bring the whole family for Soaring 100, a fun-filled weekend celebrating the history of flight. The event will mark the 100th anniversary of the Wright Brothers’ record 9 minute, 45 second glider flight. Soaring 100 will be held October 21-24th at the Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills and Jockey’s Ridge State Park in Nags Head. The First Flight Foundation (previously known as the First Flight Centennial Foundation) and a coalition of aviation groups are the backbone behind the event. You and your family will be able to enjoy a sailplane fly-in, vintage and modern glider displays, educational and entertaining symposiums, and special demonstrations and activities planned at the Wright Brothers National Memorial. At Jockey’s Ridge, three teams of aviation enthusiasts from Kansas, Ohio, and Virginia will attempt to launch replicas of the 1911 glider. Receptions, along with a gala banquet and dance, are also planned.
The Wright Brothers National Memorial is one of the area’s most popular attractions, where visitors can learn about the history of flight both indoors and out. The aircraft replicas and paintings are a must-see. You may remember the six-day event that took place in 2003 celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Wright brothers’ first powered flight. On the last day of the event, over 34,000 people attended, including former president George W. Bush.
Soaring 100 is going to be full of smiling faces and good times. Now is the time to start planning a trip for you and your family to enjoy a weekend of fun here on the Outer Banks.
