#813 Montgomery Hill
Three-quarters of a mile northeast is Montgomery Hill, site of the 55 successful flights of the "aeroplane" of John Joseph Montgomery which demonstrated aerodynamic developments still indispensable to modern aircraft. Here the basic principles of aerodynamics discovered by Montgomery were combined by his engineering skill and technology to produce a heavier-than-air flying machine which had complete control: the chambered wing, rear stabilizer, flexible wingtips, and the wing-warping aileron.
