History of Aviation
        January 9, 1793 marked the beginning of aviation history in America when Francois Jean Pierre Blanchard launched his hot air balloon from the exercise yard of the Walnut Street Jail in Philadelphia.
        Postmaster George Fox of Altoona PA established a postal sub-station at the Driving Park (aka Altoona Speedway). Aviator Walter Brookins had planned to fly on May 18, 1912 from the speedway to the main Post Office in Altoona but the unruly crowd, blocking the take-off path caused cancellation of the flight.
        Postmaster Peck of Lock Haven PA established a postal sub-station at the Race Track Lock Haven PA. On October 12, 1912 aviator Walter E Johnson flew a Thomas biplane from the race track about three miles to Agar's Park in Mill Hall PA where the mail pouch was dropped from the plane. The mail was then retrieved and brought to the post office.
        Postmaster John Clinton approved the transport of mail by aeroplane from the Fair Grounds at Natrona Heights PA. Aviator Theodore Stockman planned to fly from the fair grounds about 25 miles to Schenley Park in Pittsburgh PA. On October 4, 1913 Stockman was unable to take off and his aircraft was finally dismantled and brought to Verona PA for repair. Mail scheduled to be carried on this flight was also brought to Verona where it was posted on October 17, 1913.
        Experimental airmail service, conducted jointly by the Army and the Post Office between Washington and New York, began on May 15, 1918 with an intermediate stop in Philadelphia. The first flight left Belmont Park, Long Island, for Philadelphia and the next day continued on to Washington DC where it was met by President Woodrow Wilson.
