Foulois <ret.), who as a young second lieutenant started it all when he flew the government's first plane (Wright A-1009> on March 2, 1910. Foulois' nine enlisted men and one airplane grew into the massive U. S. Air Force, but it wasn't easy. As a young Signal Corpse officer, Foulois was ordered to Ft. Sam Houston with instructions to teach himself how to fly. He had been allotted $150 to maintain the airplane. The repair bills alone during the first four months exhausted the appropriation, so Foulois dug into his own pocket for $300 to help cover the cost of new material. In addition to his personal money, Foulois had help and material from plumbers, carpenters, painters and blacksmiths at the base. Despite many setbacks, Foulois continued to fly and improve the lone airplane. But more important was the impetus Foulois' experiments gave to aviation. In 1011 the U. S. appropriated $125.000 for military aviation. Contrast that with expected expenditures of $15.fiGO,OOQ,OOQ during 1956.
