The U.S. Centennial of Flight Commission has signed two
new memorandums of agreement with organizations participating
in the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the first
powered flight in 2003. The Commission will provide outreach
support to Aviation Specialty Resources, Inc., Charlotte,
N.C., and Three Roads Communications, Inc., Arlington, Va.,
who will in turn help promote the Commission’s national
campaign, “Centennial of Flight: Born of Dreams — Inspired
by Freedom.”

Aviation Specialty Resources, Inc. has created a moving
museum, video and technological display to celebrate the
accomplishments of the Wright brothers. The company’s
Centennial Transporter will visit locations throughout the
country from now until December 2003 and is expected to reach
over 14 million people.

Three Roads Communications, Inc. produces the public
television series “Legends of Airpower,” which details the
lives of historic American aviators. “Legends” has been
broadcast over 6,000 times on more than 230 stations in the
United States and throughout the world on the Armed Forces
Radio and Television Service. Three Roads is also producing a
television documentary about Gus McLeod, the first person to
fly an open cockpit plane to the North Pole, and his latest
adventure — a solo circumnavigation of the Earth crossing
both poles, in honor of the Centennial.

The U.S. Centennial of Flight Commission was created by
Congress to expand national and international interest in the
commemoration of the 100th anniversary of powered flight, and
will promote activities, such as those being planned by the
Air Force, Aviation Specialty Resources, Inc. and Three Roads
Communications, Inc. through a national awareness campaign,
“Centennial of Flight: Born of Dreams — Inspired by
