Last year, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport registered 63,421,235 airplane passengers, many flying across oceans and continents. In 1903, there was one airplane passenger in the entire world - he flew for 12 seconds and traveled 120 feet.  It was the start of something big.

The World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth presents one of its most popular speakers, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian David McCullough, who will discuss the dynamics and personalities that led to Orville Wright's first brief flight at Kill Devil Hills near Kitty Hawk, N.C. McCullough has been speaking to sold-out audiences across the country about his research and discoveries as he wrote his current best-seller, The Wright Brothers.
