The Finest Aero Park In World
Will be Scene of Airship and Flying Machine Contests

     Pittsfield, Mass - Feb. 27, 1909 - By an arrangement between the officials of the Long Island Motor parkway association and the board of directors of the Aero Club of America the United States will have the largest and finest aero park in the world.
     After long negotiations between Treasurer Jefferson DeMont Thompson, of the Motor Parkway association, and President Cortlandt Field Bishop, of the Aero Club, the latter organization formally accepted yesterday the offer of the automobile people to permit the aeronauts to use the magnificent private motoring territory on Long Island.
     This will give American aerial enthusiasts the finest grounds over which to make their natural and artificial experiments as well as the most extensive aera in the world yet devoted to airships and flying machine contests.
     The arrangements are the result of long negotiations between Mr. Bishop and the members of the Long Island parkway association, whose head and principal stockholder is W.K. Vanderbilt, Jr., who is said to be contemplating the purchase of an aeroplane from the Wrights.
     "I am glad to announce the consummation of our arrangements with the Motor Parkway association," said Mr. Bishop last night, "because it brings America another notch nearer the top in aerial progress.
     To Hold International Races
     "Our arrangements with the Motor Parkway people is simply a matter of courtesy, and to a certain extent we will depend upon the privileges we obtain from the owners of other stretches of unused land. We anticipate that we will be able to hold many interesting races over our park. I venture to predict that the day is not far off when the aero park of the Long Island parkway will become just as famous for its international aerial races as for its automobile contests. If we win the international aviation cup race in paris next summer, we will most likely hold our American races during the year following over this course."
