Item # 682704

September 10, 1908

OMAHA EVENING BEE, Nebraska, Sept. 10, 1908  Over a full column on page 7 concerns early aviation, headed: "THREE PHENOMENAL TRIPS" "Wrights' Airplane, in Trial at Fort Myer, Breaks All Records" "Stays In Air Over One Hour" "Its Travels at Rate of About 37 Miles an Hour--Shorter Trip is Made With Two Passengers". Another article headed: "Navy May Buy Airplane - Feat Accomplished by Orville Wright Attracts Officers".
Twelve pages, some tears at the margins, partially loose at the spine, otherwise good. Somewhat fragile & should be handled carefully.
