SCHWEIKERT, Thomas (last name sometimes mis-spelled as "Schweifert" and "Schweibert")

Affidavit, June 15, 1936

I, Thomas Schweikert, residing at 1871 Fairfield Ave. Bridgeport, Ct. recall seeing an airplane flight made by the late Gustave Whitehead approximately thirty-five years ago. I was a boy at the time, playing on a lot near the Whitehead shop on Cherry Street, and recall the incident well as we were surprised to see the plane leave the ground. It traveled a distance of approximately three hundred feet, and at a height of approximately fifteen feet in the air, to the best of my recollection.
