Marine aviation honored at 109th anniversary of first flight

Retired Maj. Gen. Charles F. Bolden Jr. smiles as he sees his official portrait as part of his induction into the First Flight Society's Paul E. Garber First Flight Shrine in Kitty Hawk, N.C., Dec. 17, the 109th anniversary of the first powered flight. Bolden's remarkable career includes flying more than 100 combat sorties in the Vietnam War, serving as an astronaut, where he flew four times in the space shuttle, serving as commanding general of the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, and now heading NASA, where he oversaw the conclusion of the space shuttle program and the successful launch of a vehicle on Mars.
