While researching we come across some very cool historical footage we have to share. This short clip is of a brave President Teddy Roosevelt taking his first flight on a Wright Brothers plane in 1910 flown by Arch Hoxsey who had recently opened the first US flying school in Montgomery, Alabama. Arch Horsey also made the first night flight in history in Montgomery Alabama early that year, making the city a pioneer in the aviation world at that time and the birth of Maxwell Air Force Base.
