Famous quotes related to kitty hawk:

    O sinewy silver biplane, nudging the wind’s withers!
    There, from Kill Devils Hill at Kitty Hawk
    Two brothers in their twinship left the dune;
    Warping the gale, the Wright wind wrestlers veered
    Capeward, then blading the wind’s flank, banked and spun.
    Hart Crane (1899–1932)
