Fairfield Celebrates 114th Anniversary of Gustave Whitehead's Flight

In celebration of the 114th anniversary of Gustave Whitehead's historic first flight in Fairfield and Bridgeport, Fairfield resident Andy Kosch displayed a replica of Whitehead's plane on Sherman Green this past weekend. Kosch, a member of Stratford's Connecticut Air and Space Center's board of directors, led a team to build and fly a replica of Whitehead's airplane in 1986 proving the airworthiness of the design and refuting many Whitehead critics.
