The Kitty Hawk by ET2 Darren Drake
This is a picture of Darren standing next to the tower on the USS Kitty Hawk, CV-63. You can see that the numbers are lit up by large lights in the shape of the 63. I asked Darren for this picture, but I really wanted pictures of the bronze plaques describing the Wright brothers first flight at kitty hawk north Carolina, but the plaques are no longer there. There was one plaque near the front of the tower (Island) and one plaque near the back. The description of the Wright brothers first flight included that this flight was 120 feet. There was an arrow on each plaque pointing to the other plaque saying follow this arrow to another plaque, that's how far the Wright brothers flew at kitty hawk, north Carolina. The plaques are gone now, It would be interesting to find out where they are now. If anyone knows, please let me know at the bottom of this page. C. Jeff Dyrek, webmaster
