Adam's Non-Stop Expermentail Air Mail Pick-up

The Adam's Non-Stop Experimental Air Mail Pickup was established in 1939.

The mail was placed in a bag and suspended on a line between two poles. A line suspended from the aircraft hooked the bag without the plane ever landing.

The air field in Natrona (actually Natrona Heights) occupied the area that is currently the Heights Plaza and Highlands High School.
