Facts from the past gleaned from the Moses Lake Herald, Columbia Basin Herald and The Neppel Record by Cheryl (Driggs) Elkins:

Gliders at Quincy

A common occurrence in the Quincy district is for residents of that area to get glimpses of gliders soaring around overhead. Four young men from the Tacoma Flying School have spent several weeks practicing in the fields there. The boys state came to Quincy because it is the finest country they know of for gliding as the air currents are just right to take their ship up any height they desire.
