Wiseman-Cooke Aircraft

     

Wiseman-Cooke Aircraft

In May 1910, as the first Wiseman airplane was being tested, construction started on a second aircraft. Wiseman made all his significant exhibition flights using this airplane, including the first air mail flight officially sanctioned by a U.S. post office, from Petaluma to Santa Rosa, California, in February 1911.

The Wiseman-Cooke Aircraft is on display at the National Postal Museum.
