Nevada has a rich aviation history populated by people who had a strong entrepreneurial spirit.
One of those people was journalist Randall Henderson. He was the first person to land an airplane in Las Vegas. The plane was a Curtiss “Jenny” – a World War One military plane. Henderson is more popularly known as the the editor and publisher of “Desert Magazine,” which he co-founded in the 1930s at Palm Desert, California.
Randall Henderson’s story is just one of the many stories Mark Hall-Patton will tell in his “Las Vegas Takes To The Skies” lecture at the Clark County Library, 1401 E. Flamingo Road, on Thursday, Sept. 3, at 7p.m.
