Arrow, Page 10
Pointing the Way! Transcontinental air mail traversed the West on a single east-west line. And like the transcontiental railroad, the air mail route crossed southern Wyoming in lieu of more populous Colorado, because the early airplanes couldn't negotiate altitudes above 10,000 feet. Cross-country air mail service began that September. The planes were army war surplus from World War I, the pilots former army flyers, and the airports were simple flat fields without actual runways. Navigation at first was rudimentary, comprised solely of the pilots' observations of ground features along the route. A 35-foot-long concrete arrow at a small airfield in southern Wyoming was used to point the way to the next airfield along the way. Clay Fraser.
