At 9:45 AM on October 24, 2011 a ceremony convened at the Wright Brothers National Memorial honoring the centennial of Orville Wright’s 9 minute 45 second world-record soaring duration flight that fulfilled the early requirements of a “C” badge and heralded the beginning of modern soaring. A few hours later the four-day celebration called SOARING100 was also history. More than 10,000 spectators, participants and members of the interested public had met at the Outer Banks of North Carolina to celebrate history and introduce the various forms of soaring to the many visitors.
