Medford's location between Seattle and San Francisco enhanced the rapid development of the Rogue Valley's aviation history. Eugene Ely, the first man to land on a naval vessel, Lindbergh's 1928 landing, the service and creation in 1934 of United Airlines were all milestones in Rogue Valley aviation history. Based on an article by William Alley, Archivist/Historian.
