From AEPilot_Jim at Confessions of a Gun Toting Seagull – an interesting glimpse into the storied history of the TSA.
Orville and Wilbur conducted what is considered to be the first successful powered flight by a heavier-than-aircraft. The flight lasted 12 seconds and covered a total distance of 120 feet. The flight might have lasted longer but TSA screening took longer than expected at both departure and arrival and the Wrights spent most of the day searching for their lost luggage.
Nice to know that our government bureaucracies are on the forefront of innovation. I wonder if Orville asked Wilbur to take off his shoes?
