1910: LOS ANGELES INTERNATIONAL AIR MEET. The Aero Club of California hosted the first American flying meet at Los Angeles, California.
The Los Angeles International Air Meet (January 10 to January 20, 1910) was among the earliest airshows in the world and the first major airshow in the United States. It was held in Los Angeles County, California, at Dominguez Field, southwest of Dominguez Rancho Adobe in present-day Rancho Dominguez, California. Spectator turnout numbered approximately 254,000 over 11 days of ticket sales. The Los Angeles Times called it “one of the greatest public events in the history of the West.”
