One of the Outer Banks’ best-known claims to fame is the Wright brothers and their successful attempt at powered flight. To commemorate the Wright brothers’ advances in the field, the Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills marks the spot where the first powered and controlled flight in an airplane occurred. You can visit the Wright Brothers Memorial today to see where the first series of flights took off and landed and an information center to learn about the Wright brothers’ history and their original designs for airplanes. Another Outer Banks flight-oriented activity is the Dare County Regional Airport Museum. At this museum you can learn more about the history of flight on the Outer Banks beyond the Wright brothers, such as the importance of Outer Banks flight in World War II and local aviator heroes.
