Add to plan Remove from plan
 The first plane to land on Arizona soil touched down in Yuma on October 25, 1911.  Robert G. “Bob” Fowler was flying a biplane with an engine rented from the Wright brothers from California to Miami.

A monument now marks the spot, along with a statue of Fowler.  Don’t miss photos highlighting Yuma aviation history inside the Yuma Landing restaurant.
