This Army officer is known as "the last of the first." He described himself as "the first, and only, pilot in history to learn to fly by mail." During his aviation career, he accomplished a series of numerous firsts including being the Army's first dirigible pilot, the sole officer in the Army's Aeronautical Division and leading the Army's entire air force while it deployed for an active campaign. The army gave him the charge of flying the Army's first aircraft. He would later become the Chief of the Air Corps in 1931. For this multipart question: Name the officer. Name the aircraft and finally name the expedition.
