So it turns out that yesterday it was a 100 years that the first plane actually flew.
Some guys spent a long time building an exact replica of the plane the Wright brothers
first used to fly, and a celebration was prepared with 35,000 people waiting to see
the plane fly. Even Bush was supposed to go, though he finally didn't. Well, the thing is
that the replica of the plane, such an exact replica, did not fly at all. Not even the 36 meters of the first Wright brothers' plane. 100 years ago, 3 people were witnessing the Wright brothers experiments. Yesterday it was 35,000, but it didn't work. America is not what it used to be, not anymore? Great things always happen among few people.
