One of the most notable pilots at Carruthers Field was Vernon W. Blyth Castle. Vernon W. Blyth was a dance star turned war hero. Vernon Castle Memorial is the site where the international dance star and war hero, Vernon Castle, plummeted to his death in a tragic aviation accident in 1918. Nearly 50 years after his death, just off the avenue that bears his name, a monument was built to remember him.
