Burlington, Vermont – September 27, 1910

     On September 27, 1910, Vermont aviator Geroge Schmidt of Rutland, was attempting to take off at the Valley Fair in Burlington when his Curtiss aircraft caught some ropes surrounding an enclosure and broke several wing braces.  Schmidt was unhurt, but the aircraft required repair before it could be flight worthy.
