I find the story of Douglas Corrigan pretty fascinating and inspiring. Sometimes the wrong way is the right way. All that matters is your intention and people’s perception.
Having flown his nine year-old, $900 Curtiss Robin to New York, Corrigan fueled up and took off after announcing that he planned to return to Los Angeles. When next heard from, Corrigan and his old plane were in Dublin, Ireland, where he said, “My name’s Corrigan. I left New York yesterday morning headed for California, but I got mixed up in the clouds and must have flown the wrong way.” And so was born the wry legend of “Wrong Way” Corrigan.
