I grew up in the 'burbs of Dayton Ohio, so aviation is was a way of life for us. Kitty Hawk may have the first flight, but the Wright brothers are Daytonians and we have the first plane and many other aviation firsts. So I guess aviation is bred in our genes, or highly encouraged by our society. Ohio does have a lot of aviation firsts- Wright brothers: first flight, John Glenn: first to orbit the earth: Neil Armstrong: first to walk on the moon and a total of 24 Astronauts are from the Buckeye State. Of course we have the "Best Dam Band in the Land" as well! O-H-I-O go Buckeyes!
