Predictions for Aviation Week

Dec. 7, 1909, Aviation Meet 

Dec. 7, 1909: How would you describe flying in an airplane to someone who’s never done it in a time when all but a few people are earthbound? 

"By climbing to the top of a tall tree in a heavy wind," said Mr. Willard in the interesting description of the sensations experienced in an aeroplane flight with which he began his talk, "you can get very much the same feeling that you have during the flight of an aeroplane. I know of no way of describing the sensation more closely."
