Officials Clean Up After Centennial Of Flight Festivities

Posted December 18, 2003

— Six days of history can leave a mess.

It was tear-down and clean-up day Thursday at the Wright Brothers National Memorial.

The crowds and TV crews are long gone after witnessing the 100th anniversary of man's first flight.

The Centennial Celebration drew more than 100,000 visitors from around the world, which was about half the number organizers had planned for.
