Their Military Flyer models were demonstrated to the US Army, in test flights here at Fort Myer, Virginia, USA. The first demonstration was on 28 June 1909, with the aircraft purchased by the Aeronautical Division of the US Army Signal Corps on 2 August 1909. This postcard was published circa 1909 by the G. M.
