πŸš€ Meet Hugh Willoughby, the Wealthy Dilettante Turned Aviation Pioneer ✈️

In balloons or planes, this New York rich kid, friend to the Wright brothers and later America's oldest pilot, realized the new frontier was in the skies. 🌌

DID YOU KNOW?

In 1897, Willoughby proved himself as an explorer and undertook an expedition to sail around the southern tip of Florida through poorly charted waters and little-known islands. He couldn't measure his daily travels, so by fitting a bicycle wheel with paddles, connecting it to an odometer, and attaching it to his canoe, he could measure his trips through the water. As the wheel turned with the boat's movement, it tracked each day’s travel.
πŸŒŠπŸ›Ά Despite this ingenious achievement, Willoughby foresaw that the unknown lands were becoming fewer as the twentieth century approached. He recognized that new technology was the new frontier, leading him to pioneer in the world of aviation. πŸŒπŸ”§

Chris Jay, I saw this and thought of you! Apparently, there will be a lot of local pics and boards there from different eras. Impact will be there. Should be pretty cool if you're around in the next few months.
