The story of the birth of commercial flight

I’ve posted before the long photo version of Leon Cuddleback’s memories of making the first flight from Pasco to Elko via Seattle, but this site has put together the story along with a lot of newspaper clippings and additional information. Click on the clippings and photos to see a larger version. It’s an excellent reminder of why it’s so important to remember our heritage and preserve it for the future.
