The first plane to land on Arizona soil dropped out of the sky into a ball park between 1st and 3rd Streets on 4th Avenue, October 25, 1911.

Robert G. "Bob" Fowler was flying a Wright model B, 30-hp two-prop-biplane. He landed in Yuma during a history making flight that began in Santa Monica, California and ended by rolling the wheels of his biplane into the Atlantic surf in Miami, Florida.

There is a monument acknowledging the first flight into Yuma, Arizona, at the Yuma Landing Restaurant, as well as a pictorial display on the history of Yuma.
