Biographical / Historical:
The first "Wright Brothers Day" was established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1963 to celebrate the anniversary of the world's first successful flights of a human-carrying, powered, and controlled heavier-than-air flying machine made by the Wright brothers on December 17, 1903. The resolution was later amended (77 Stat. 402; 36 U.S.C. 143) to specify December 17 as the date on which Wright Brothers Day should be commemorated and to authorize and request that the President issue a proclamation each year inviting the public to observe the day with "appropriate ceremonies and activities."
