Eagle Lake Sees Its First Air Plane in 1917

I want to thank Julius Baumann for sending me this clipping from The Eagle Lake Headlight.  It's an article from 2012 about the first airplane to touch down in Eagle Lake in 1917.  It reminded me of this article about a similar event in Sugar Land in 1919.

Eagle Lake and Sugar Land have a connection in William T. Eldridge, Sr., who learned the sugar business in the former before moving to the later in 1906.  I look forward to visiting the Prairie Edge Museum and Eagle Lake Depot Museum soon.
