fort myer: Fort Myer VA-Home of the First Military Flight Casualty in the US - 05/31/10 05:03 AM
When it comes to thinking about firsts and flying everyone immediately thinks of the Wright Brothers and Kitty Hawk.  As well they should.  However what many don't realize is that the Wright Brothers made what might be considered a more important flight in Arlington VA at the Fort Myer Army Post.
