Gordon, Donald H.
Donald H. Gordon grew up in the El Cajon Valley, California, and built and flew a glider and three powered planes on the family’s 160-acre ranch at Bostonia. His made one of the first power flights west of the Mississippi, within six years of the Wright Brothers’ first flight. Earlier, while the Wrights were making their first public flights in 1903, Gordon built a glider which took off from the top of the family barn. The contraption collapsed, and plane-building was suspended for several years.
