August 14, 1930, Appleton Post-Crescent
Back when the airplane was still a novelty and barnstorming was a thing, folks would pay to experience flight. And now, thanks to this ad, the dear residents of Menasha could have the same thrill.
We've covered the old Whiting Airport extensively here in the blog in past years: http://menashabook.blogspot.com/2013/09/first-air-mail-flight.html , http://menashabook.blogspot.com/2015/11/airfield_19.html , and http://menashabook.blogspot.com/2014/01/cherry-sparkle.html. The airport didn't last due to the economy surrounding the Depression years, but we all know it gave its name to Airport Road.
This is an example of the airplane mentioned in the ad. It could hold six passengers.
