A flag flies at half-staff in honor of the victims of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., as the National Wright Brothers Memorial looms in the background on the 109th anniversary of the first powered flight, Dec. 17 at Kitty Hawk, N.C. On that date 109 years ago, aviation became a reality when Orville Wright flew in a machine heavier than air for 12 seconds.
