Summer sunset of Huffman Prairie where a thunderstorm dissipates over the Wright Brothers replica hangar and starting derrick.Golden Hour Over Huffman Prairie No. 6Huffman Prairie serves as the epicenter for the discovery of aviation. Following their 17 Dec 1903 demonstration, the Wright Brothers set up research in this field conducting 150 flights in 1904-1905 which refined the mastery of flight. Today we call this former pasture the Huffman Prairie Flying Field and a National Historic Landmark. Although the prairie resides on Wright-Patterson AFB, Dayton, Ohio it is preserved by the National Park Service in partnership with the Aviation Trail Inc. who promotes Dayton’s Aviation Heritage. In this image, late afternoon thunderstorms began dissipating allowing the day’s last rays to paint this historic land in warm golden colors.

Bush creating the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park. In creating the park, the actions also saved the home of Paul Laurence Dunbar. Today the park incorporates the Wright Cycle Company Complex, Huffman Prairie Flying Field, Wright Brothers Aviation Center at Carillon Historical Park, Paul Laurence Dunbar State Memorial and the Wright’s home, Hawthorn Hill.
