Remembering the Airmail

Remembering the airmail as we fly in our heavy jets the same routes that our predecessors flew in biplanes and Ford Tri-Motors. Their chief concerns in looking upon this view might have been, “Can I top that peak, or do I have the gas to go around it?” To us, it is a monument to the pioneers of early aviation and their predecessors, the Pony Express. High atop Capitan Peak at the southern tip of the Guadeloupe Mountains, there is a physical monument to both.
