She Said "My Dad Flew With The Wright Brothers" Aviation Grouping

Recommended Posts

I found it. Thanks.

 

At best Sgt. Rice might have flown on his own time unofficially.

 

The family was clear that the green uniform had wings on it.

 

What kind of wings they can't remember.

A couple of years ago I did a google search of Ward Rice and found an article about him and a pilot crashing their floatplane into the Potomac.

 

It was the first crash of a floatplane in the US military.

 

I can no longer find this article.

 

What am I doing wrong ?

I reponded in your other thread, so I hope you don't mind me posting this here also. I found the following article in the NY Times and the San Francisco Call ( http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn85066387/1912-10-23/ed-1/seq-13/;words=Harold+Rice+Ward+Geiger )

Never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of your success will be how you treat other people - your family, friends, and coworkers, and even strangers you meet along the way.

Thank you Pointedcuffs.

 

I love that article and that they call Rice an Aviator.

 

That event took place in 1912.

 

I'm sure that wasn't the first time Rice went up.

 

He must have felt qualified ( an Air Medal :D ) to have some sort of status ( Co Pilot - Aerial Mechanic ) for his achievements.

Beast,

 

You're my hero.

 

How'd you find that ?

 

I'm glad I could help. I used Google and entered his first name, last name and "Potomac" as search terms. When I tried the search with his middle initial, it didn't come up.

Great God man! I've seen some rare and historic items on this forum but I think this one really does fall into the category of "it ought to be in a museum". I am stunned.

This was a great group, I think I bid on it on eBay when it sold. Seemed to me it went for what I consider an reasonable price.
