On This Day in Aviation History

1922 - 1st Lt. Harold Ross Harris (1897-1988) becomes the first member of the U.S. Army Air Service to save his life by parachute, when the Loening PW-2A, (probably AS-64388), he is testing out of McCook Field, Ohio, suffers vibration, loses part of left wing or aileron, so he parts company with the airframe, landing safely. Two sources gives the date as 20 October. McCook Field personnel create the "Caterpillar Club" for those whose lives are saved by parachute bail-out with Harris the plank-holding member.

Vision of Take-off Aviation Marketplace

To become the website of first choice for those passionate about, or just interested in, aviation who wish to advertise, purchase and browse aircraft, products and services related to aviation.

Mission of Take-off Aviation Marketplace

We aim to provide an attractive and functional website devoted to aviation which:

  • provides cost-effective opportunities to sellers to market their aircraft, related products and services;

  • allows prospective customers to view offerings from a range of sellers and to make contact with their selected suppliers; and

  • encourages all interested in aviation to browse advertised aircraft, related products and services on a regular basis.

Flowing from this we envisage that the interests of sellers, customers and others will be well-satisfied, resulting in the continued growth of the website until it attains and maintains its position as the ‘go to’ source of information relating to offerings in the aviation marketplace.
