THE HAROLD HARRIS STORY
#1 in a series of videos presented by the Aviation Trail Parachute Museum:




Watch the story of the first emergency bailout of an aircraft with a freefall parachute rig Type A on October 22, 1922 at Dayton Ohio by Lt. Harold R Harris. He landed safely in a grape arbor in a Dayton neighborhood at 335 Troy Street. His disabled Loening Monoplane P-233 crashed in the yard of a house on Valley Street. The freefall landing site is marked by an Aviation Trail sign on a street side utility pole at the Troy Street location.
