Saturday evening the city celebrated the 100 year anniversary of the first time an aircraft took off and flew from Wichita Falls. Representatives from the Historical Society did a lot of research on this story. They determined that the first flight took place by a member of the Moisant Aviation touring group on April 14, of 1912. Costumed re-enatcors and radio controlled aircraft helped commemorate this significant anniversary. Two members of the touring group performed to a large number of people who traveled from all parts of North Texas and Oklahoma to see their airplane take to the skies.
