LANSING, WV- (WOAY)
Today marks the 115th anniversary of the Wright Brothers first flight in Kill Devil Hills, NC. Whats a better way to celebrate this accomplishment then to go out flying. We sent it to meteorologist Matt bullock with his flight experience
We’re high in the sky, celebrating history. It’s been one hundred and fifth teen years, since the Wright Brothers first flight. And now it’s our turn.
“My dad got me into flying he’d get me up on Sunday mornings and said we’re going flying. He would get us out of bed me and my brother and my sister we all learn how to fly by my dad. He was probably more inspired by the wright brothers and the greats for aviation like Rickenbaker, and Charles Linburgh, those kind of guys back in his era but he was the biggest inspiration.” Said Gary Kessler an American Airlines pilot
Besides being a meteorologist my other dream was to become a pilot. Now I get my chance.
As the wheels went up we started our ascent. We’re soaring through the sky they’re many breathtaking views in southern West Virginia, now let’s see if I can earn my wings.
What an absolute adrenaline rush. Here’s what Gary Kessler thought of my flying?
“You did great if you if you would’ve taken it up as a professional career I think you’ll do just fine. You got it in you” said Gary.
