We visited Kill Devil Hills- the birthplace of aviation- in October 2014. It is the site of "the Wright brothers' first controlled, powered airplane flights on December 17, 1903.'' It was chosen for that purpose by the brothers "for its good winds". It is a place where the world history has taken a huge step forward. We were thrilled to see the famous hills with our own eyes...
