Clark makes his mark in Hawaii

Maj. Harold Clark, left, followed Capt. John Brooks as Army Department aviation officer in Hawaii in November 1917 (100 years ago this month). Six months later, he made the first interisland flight. He flew a Curtiss R-6 with Sgt. Robert P. Gay from Fort Kamehameha to Maui where a reception waited. Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines is named for him.
