Welcome me in congratulating Jeff on his first solo! As a retired San Diego Fire Captain his passion for aviation has taken flight as PIC! Today marks a significant milestone, and we celebrate his achievement in soaring through the skies solo. Wishing Jeff many more safe and exhilarating flights ahead!
On August 20, 1935, the first B-17 flew from Seattle to Wright Field, Ohio, in 9 hours and 3 minutes to compete for the Army Air Corps strategic bomber contract.
