Did You Know?
President Wilson saw Lt. George Boyle off on the first U.S. air mail flight, which left from a field behind the present-day FDR Memorial. After going the wrong way for over 20 miles, Boyle crashed his Curtiss Jenny in a Maryland farm field. On his second attempt, Boyle crashed again. Though Boyle survived, he was not permitted a third attempt.
