CHL# 718 SITE OF THE INITIAL UNITED STATES AIR MEET

About a half mile southeast of this spot, on Dominquez Hill in historic Rancho San Pedro, the first air meet in the United States was held during January 10-20, 1910. This area has evolved into one of the world’s leading aviation-industrial centers.

Note from Christine: Nothing here other than the plaque in the middle of an industrial part of town.

Descriptions of each landmark are from the California Office of Historical Preservation website.
