Fred Hotson’s award-winning history of the first non-stop east-to-west airplane crossing of the Atlantic. How it began, the three daring crewmen, planning the trip, then how it succeeded in spite of navigation problems. The crew feted in New York, the airplane's fate. Writes the American Aviation Historical Society, “There are many books dealing with pioneer ocean flying, but only a very small number can be classified as important. This book belongs in that select group.”
