Flight Of The Turkey
Speaking at the 100th anniversary celebration of the Wright Brothers' first powered flight in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, President Bush said, "This day...is one for recalling a heroic event in the history of our nation and the history of the world."
Dressed in the historic flight suit worn by Wilbur on his inaugural flight, Mr Bush continued, "We remember one small machine, and we honor the giants who flew it." Immediately following his speech, the President was scheduled to fly a replica of the Wright's flying machine, which he painstakingly built over many months in the White House garage.
"I'm sure glad I didn't have to take this thing to Baghdad in the middle of the night," Bush quipped.
