While older signs have become increasingly harder to find - a local sign find can still be something unique or something you have never seen before. This was the case last month when I went to pick up a rental car at the Concord-Padgett Regional Airport near Concord, North Carolina. Leaving one of the access roads was this non-typical Welcome to North Carolina sign.
This sign is different than the standard all green Welcome to North Carolina sign with the state flag on it that you see along most highways. This sign celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Wright Brothers' historic flight (1903-2003). It was a pleasant surprise and I must admit I like it a lot more than the basic sign we have seen for decades around here.
