The first story I am sharing this week comes from the Aug. 25, 1911, Western World and is headlined: "Flying Machine Came and Returned," with the subhead of "Could not find sufficient space here in which to fly."

The photos I have chosen to illustrate the story are the Anvil, the ship which ferried the plane to Bandon, and a plane on the beach less than a decade later which probably looked a lot like the one in my story.
