As any pilot or aviation enthusiast will know, the first heavier-than-air powered flight took place in Kitty Hawk, on December 17th, 1903. The Wright Brothers flew their primitive Wright-Flyer I, made of Spruce wood and Pride of the West muslin, off Kill Devil Hills, NC. Today, a monument sits atop the dune upon which the Wright Brothers flew many of their test-glider flights. This monument is easily seen from First Flight Airport (KFFA), which is only a few hundred yards away.
First Flight Airport (KFFA) has one runway: 2/20 (3,000ft x 60ft). As one pilot famously said "If you can land at First Flight on a windy day, you can land anywhere." With tall trees on both ends and sides of the runway, it's frequently turbulent with a noticeable crosswind... this was the case on the day I flew there.
My dad was waiting at the end of the runway for our arrival into KFFA's runway 20. In the video below, you can see his exterior footage of our landing coupled with the GoPro cockpit footage which was being recorded at the same time. Here is the video:
