Search Yuma Arizona

The first plane to land on Arizona soil dropped out of the sky onto a ballpark between 1st and 3rd Streets on 4th Avenue. This landmark occasion occurred on October 25, 1911. Robert G."Bob" Fowler was flying a Wright model B, 30-hp two-prop-biplane. Fowler landed in Yuma during a history making flight that began in Santa Monica, and ended by rolling the wheels of his biplane into the Atlantic surf in Miami, Florida. There is a monument acknowledging the first flight into Yuma, Arizona at the Yuma Landing Restaurant, as well as a pictorial display on the history of Yuma.
