Banning sees his first plane as a teenager

Banning was born in 1899–the dawn of the Golden Age of Flight. This was the same year that the Wright Brothers embarked on their quest to build a flying machine! 14 years later, Banning saw his very first airplane–a pusher plane–that was being flown in an airshow in Canton, Oklahoma. Find out more about his adventure by watching the video.
