EXTREMELY FINE. THIS IS THE ONLY PIECE OF MAIL KNOWN FROM THIS FLIGHT FROM THE WESTCHESTER COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS TO THE WHITE PLAINS POST OFFICE.

Organizers of the Welkin Aviation Association Exhibition arranged for famed aviator Lincoln Beachey and a less well-known flyer, William B. Hemstrought, to put on display flights in Curtiss airplanes during a fair held at Westchester County Fair Grounds near White Plains, New York. On Saturday, August 31, Beachey flew a pouch containing 110 pieces of mail from the fairgrounds. A special post office was set up and route number 607,003 was assigned by the USPOD to one trip. The special duplex datestamp looks similar to one used earlier that month in Hohokus, N.J. (AAMC 45). Beachey dropped the mail bag to postal officials on the ground, but it ended up on the lawn of St. John’s Church, across the street from the post office.

Ex Reinhard and Jones. The history of this flight was described in an article by Thomas O’Sullivan (Air Post Journal, Nov. 1951). Illustrated in AAMC 7th Edition on page 52 (Image)
