NOV 1910 - FIRST AIR CRAFT CARRIER FLIGHT! - USS BIRMINGHAM - BEFORE CONSTRUCTION

Nov. 1910 The birth of the aircraft carrier occurs when Eugene Ely takes off from the cruiser USS Birmingham in Virginia, on a Curtiss biplane. The warship has an 83-foot platform built over the foredeck for the take-off.

Eugene Ely was the first pilot launch from a stationary ship. He took off from the US Cruiser USS Birmingham at Hampton Roads, Virginia and landed nearby on Willoughby Spit after some five minutes in the air.

The pioneer force behind the development of a naval aviation policy was the United States Navy. The US Navy was behind Glenn Curtiss's ground breaking take-off test performed from a provisional platform installed on the USS Birmingham. This eventful test was followed by an equally impressive landing on a similar platform aboard the USS Pennsylvania the following January.
