First Flight Across the Bay -- February 1, 2012

James Radley made the first flight across San Francisco Bay, from the city to Oakland.  He flew in a Blériot monoplane.  The lower photo shows him flying past the cruiser Pennsylvania.  Eugene Ely would land on a platform erected on the bow of the ship a few days later.  From the 16-January-1911 San Francisco Call.
