Where was the first commercial air flight

On January 1, 1914, the first scheduled commercial air flight took passengers from Tampa Bay, Florida, to St. Petersburg, Florida. The service, which lasted only a few weeks, took one person at a time over the 22-mile (35-kilometer) route.

The impressive, mountain-sized sculpture of four American presidents at Mt. Rushmore was created by Gutzon Borglum.
