EUGENE B. ELY – DEDICATION TO NAVAL AVIATION - BRONZE MONUMENT BY MICHAEL MAIDEN

 

Dedication to Naval Aviation

 
 

Michael has created 9 Life-and-a-quarter sized figures, honoring the rich history of Aviation in the United States Navy. The figure you can see in the old photograph on the right is Eugene B. Ely. On November 14, 1910, Ely took off in his Curtiss airplane from the temporary platform erected over the bow of the scout cruiser, Birmingham. On January 18, 1911, Ely landed his plane on the armored cruiser Pennsylvania, and after a brief visit, took off again and flew back to shore. Because of these accomplishments, and the importance of his feat, he is known to some as the father of Naval Aviation.
