In 1911, Eugene Burton became the first pilot to land on the deck of a ship when he descended onto the warship USS Pennsylvania. The event is the dawn of a new age in warfare as the predecessor of aircraft carriers, which will go on to be one of the most successful weapons of the 20th century, playing a central role in WWII’s pacific theater. Could this 1911 double eagle have been used to purchase the materials needed to create the runway on top of the USS Pennsylvania?
