This is a long view of Montgomery Waller Park on Otay Mesa. John J. Montgomery is one of the pioneers of aviation. His flights even pre-date the Wright brother's flight. According to the plaques, and
several history websites, Montgomery flew the first successful "controlled flight" in a glider from this site on August 28, 1883.

I used to walk my dog at Montgomery park everyday!

Surf puppy sorry but it is not Chula Vista. It is San Diego 92154, maybe not quite Otay Mesa, which is a bit to the east of here, but definitely not Chula Vista.

I stand corrected! I think it is closer to CV than Otay though.

Is this the park with the B-24 wing? That looks like that is it in the pic. If so it's definitely not in CV. It's on the south side of Palm, just across from Montgomery HS. We knew someone who taught their for a while.
