SI Airport

 

In her airplane; on September 4, 1911, at the Richmond County Fair, Staten Island, 
Harriet Quimby piloted her Moisant-built monoplane over the heads of the spectators
in the first night flight recorded by a woman.  She was Wearing her
purple satin flying costume and made such a dramatic impression on the public
 that she became the Dresden China Aviatrix.

Civil Air Patrol out of Miller Field, Don Speroni on the Wing, Monroe Klein besides the plane and
Rodney Jaeger (of Jaeger furniture fame) in the cockpit
Mission was called Operation Survival East. Radiation testing

Don recently corrected my new book, where I state that we had three airports on Staten Island.
 There were actually four; Staten Island Municipal (
begun by Ed McCormick)  east of Richmond Avenue,
Donovan-Hughes west side of Richmond Avenue, Miller Field in New Dorp
and a dirt strip in Travis (Richmond County Airport)

(check my Memories pages for Dons hilarious story about chasing golfers with his plane)
