C326 Firsts in Flight II
Issue Date: April 24, 2011
On April 12, 2011, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued five new stamps comprising the second Issue in its ongoing five-part Firsts in Flight Series. After years of
exhaustive and highly innovative research using biplane kites, personally-crafted wind-tunnels and full-scale gliders (during which time they demonstrated their brilliant ability to visualize
the behavior of a machine not yet constructed), Orville and Wilbur Wright created their first powered flyer. At about 10:35 a.m. on December 17, 1903, Orville guided the flyer into the air and
successfully flew 120 feet in 12 seconds. The flyer, launched from a 60-foot-long monorail track, made three more flights that day, traveling distances of 175, 200 and finally 852 feet (all four
flights were witnessed by five local citizens). For the first time in history, a heavier-than-air machine had achieved powered and sustained flight under complete pilot control. Finally,mankind
had learned to fly.
