Pliska Airplane

Search Midland Texas

Blacksmith Johnny Pliska built and flew the first airplane in Texas. Construction began in 1905, just two years after the Wright Bros flight. It's uncertain when the first flight took place, but sometime before 1911. The plane can be viewed daily at the Midland Airport lobby.
