October 24th

1911: Orville Wright remains in the air 9 minutes and 45 seconds in a Wright Glider at Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina… enraging his wife since he never lasted longer than 3 minutes in the bedroom.

1931: The George Washington Bridge opens to the public. And the public still can’t wait to use it as soon as the construction crews clear off.

1946: A camera on board the V-2 No. 13 rocket takes the first photograph of Earth from outer space. Earth later complains the picture was of its bad side.
