In 1939, President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed National Aviation Day to be August 19, in honor of Orville Wright’s birthday. Roosevelt intended the day to commemorate the development of aviation in the United States and, since then, it has gone on to also celebrate its history.

In honor of National Aviation Day, airlines and airports throughout the country will be offering aviation enthusiasts behind-the-scenes looks at operations and other aviation-themed activities.

August 19 is also World Photo Day so what better way to celebrate both occasions than with some of our favorite sunrise and sunset aircraft photos.
