Scouring the information super airways can sometimes be a tough,
if educational, task for the Aero-News staff... but it also allows
us to check out some truly neat and exciting sites, so it's not
that bad a gig. On any given day, we may check dozens (and often
hundreds) of different sources for story ideas, and facts
confirmation. And, as is the nature of our business, much of this
is done on the Internet.
The ANN gang decided we probably shouldn't keep some of the neat
sites, info resources, and organizations we've discovered to
ourselves... so we decided to bring you Aero-Linx. These are the
sites that WE check out -- when we need added perspective, a new
spin on a day's topic... or just want to escape into
cyber-aero-space for awhile.
Look for some of our favorite sites, coming each day to ANN via
Suggestions for future Aero-Linx segments are always
welcome, as well.
Aero-Linx: The Wright Brothers
& The Invention of the Aerial Age --Smithsonian
Removed temporarily from its place of honor in Smithsonian's
Milestones of Flight, the 1903 Wright Flyer, the world's first
successful airplane, serves as the centerpiece of this exhibition,
which celebrates the centennial of the Wright brothers' historic
flights. For the first time, the airplane is being displayed on the
floor, so you can get a close-up, eye-level look at the historic
craft that ushered in the age of flight.
The first part of this exhibition tells the story of how Wilbur
and Orville Wright invented the airplane—who they were, how
they worked, and what they accomplished. The second part shows how
their monumental achievement affected the world in the decade that
followed, when people everywhere became fascinated with flight. The
exhibition includes many historic photographs and cultural
artifacts, along with instruments and personal items associated
with the Wrights.
