1918 Air Mail Service Begins

The US Post Office began the first regulary scheduled air mail serviced on May 15th 1918 between New York and Washington. The first flight was made by Lietenant George Boyle, who started the service inauspiciously by following the wrong tracks heading south instead of north to New York.
