On this date in 1908, Lt. Thomas Selfridge became the first person killed in an airplane accident. He was a passenger on the plane piloted by Orville Wright when it crashed.
- Orville’s brother Wilbur, was not on the plane - he was out riding his horse “Mr. Ed” at the time.
Have a great day, Happy Rosh Hashanah to our Jewish readers, and I’ll see you back here Tuesday!
