Box Cars to Jets: First Fifty Years of Arizona Aviation with Natalie Stewart-Smith

October 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Arizonans quickly embraced the aviation advances of the early 1900s. Whether for fun, adventure, or science, they made their own planes and soared, sometimes with rough landings. The adventure, the science, the opportunity, and even the unknown drew Arizonans into the skies. And they accomplished much! Take a flight through history with Natalie Stewart-Smith.

This program is cohosted by Maricopa County Library District – Aquila Library.
