September 09, 1908

THE OMAHA DAILY BEE, Nebraska, Sept. 9, 1908 

* Early airplane flights
* Orville Wright - Brothers
* Fort Meyer, Virginia

The front page has an interesting article headed: "Fast Flights By Wright" "Aeroplane Circles Field Thirteen Times at Rate of Thirty-Six Miles an Hour" with the text providing the detail of their most recent experiments in flight. Curious that the writer mentions an "aerial garage" as the place where the airplane is housed.
Complete in 10 pages, some staining near edges, partially loose at the spine. Good condition but it should be handled carefully as issues from this era are very fragile.
