Benbow-Myers Montana Meteor
 
Benbow-ball
 
Photographed on November 6, 1903 at the Balloon Farm of “Professor” Carl E. Myers at Frankfort, New York. The “Meteor”, a patented invention of Thomas Chalkley Benbow, was built, assembled, and – during late October-early November – tried at the Balloon Farm. The airship later made brief ascensions with some success at the aeronautical concourse of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, otherwise known as the St. Louis World’s Fair of 1904. T. C. Benbow filed his Air-ship patent on May 27, 1902, which was accepted on November 8, 1904 – US Patent 774,643.
