On March 20 the Wright Brothers National Memorial maintenance staff returned the reproduction Orville Wright bust to its wright-ful place atop Big Kill Devil Hill.

The reproduction bust was stolen last October and found a few days later on a nearby beach. Damage to the bust and the bust’s heavy granite mounting base required repairs before they could be placed back at the foot of the Wright Brothers Monument.
