 North Carolina State Quarter Coloring Page

The North Carolina state quarter coloring page shows an image of the quarter issued in 2001 that represents the state of North Carolina.
The North Carolina quarter celebrates the first airplane flight, with a picture of Orville and Wilbur Wright's plane taking off and the inscription "First Flight." They said it couldn't be done. But on December 17, 1903, at the beach near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, a man actually flew through the air.

The pilot was Orville Wright, who with his brother, Wilbur, designed the first motorized flying machine. Called the Flyer, it traveled a distance of approximately 37 meters (120 feet) on its first flight, staying in the air for twelve seconds. The Wright brothers chose the Kill Devil Hills beach near Kitty Hawk for a good reason. The high dunes and steady winds provided the desired flying conditions that the Wright brothers were looking for, the remote location discouraged competitors and curiosity seekers, and the soft sand for a gentler landing.
