Cable, broadcast networks plan extensive coverage of 100th anniversaryCable, broadcast networks plan extensive coverage of 100th anniversary

Those who are unable to make it to Kill Devil Hills for tomorrow's 100th anniversary of powered flight celebrations will still have ample opportunity to see it live. Hundreds of media credentials have been issued for this week's events.

"Unlike a century ago, when the Wright brothers went to North Carolina for secrecy, the world will be watching this December 17," said AOPA President Phil Boyer.

Both C-SPAN and NASA-TV are planning live coverage of the commemoration. Each is expected to offer webcast coverage, as well.

Live coverage can also be anticipated on CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News Channel, cable outlets that routinely offer live coverage of events in which President Bush participates. The broadcast networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC, will all have reporters on-scene. In addition, the networks' news feed services will provide reports for local newscasts all across the country.
