The flying Tarboxes

Gurdon and Andrew. Gurdon was the first person to fly in Georgetown SC, in July of 1911. Seventeen year-old Andrew landed at the Georgetown County Airport this afternoon, almost 97 years after his great grandfather's inaugural flight. It couldn't have been better.

Pictured here from left to right are three generations of Tarbox men: Paul, Andew's father, who flew from Virginia with Andrew; Andrew; and Gurdon Jr, Andrew's grandfather and son of the first Tarbox to fly.
