The Dominguez Air Meet was held January 10-20, 1910, at Los Angeles' Dominguez Field. Louis Paulhan and Glenn Curtiss were the two most famous aviators, and were joined by aviators Charles F. Willard, Charles K. Hamilton and M. Miscarol. Three records were broken at the Air Meet: the records for both altitude and distance were set by Paulhan; and the record for speed with a passenger was set by Curtiss. Roy Knabenshue and Lincoln Beachey also operated their dirigible balloons at this meet.
