First Aircraft Carrier in the World

Share with friends :

Eugene Ely takes his Curtiss pusher airplane off from the deck of USS Birmingham on 14 November 1910. It was the First airplane takeoff from a warship. He flew for two miles before landing on a Willoughby Spit beach. It was a big success and so they decided to continue experiment. But this time, a plane had to land on a ship. It happens on 18 January 1911, Eugene Ely lands with the same plane on USS Pennsylvania, making this first landing on a warship in history and a great historical event.
