Proud of East Texas: Ezekiel Airship

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -

One of the most fascinating stories to come out of man's centuries old attempt at flight happened right here in East Texas.

While the Wright Brothers are given credit for the first powered flight, the Ezekiel Airship flew more than a year earlier in Pittsburg.

You can see the replica of the Ezekiel Airship at the Northeast Rural Heritage Museum in Pittsburg. The museum is located at 204 West Marshall Avenue.
