Hunter brothers... endurance airplane flight record...



Item # 551173

July 5, 1930

THE NEW YORK TIMES, NY, July 5, 1930 

* Hunter Brothers
* Endurance airplane flight record


This 24 page newspaper has a three column headline on the front page: "ENDURANCE FLIERS FORCED TO QUIT AFTER SETTING RECORD AT 553 HOURS; BREAK IN OIL GAUGE UPSETS PLANS" with many subheads and related photo. More on page 3.

Other news of the day throughout. Light browning around the margins and a little irregular along the spine, otherwise in good condition.

wikipedia notes: Between June 11 and July 4, 1930, the brothers John, Kenneth, Albert, and Walter Hunter set a new record of 553 hours 40 minutes over Chicago using two Stinson SM-1 Detroiters as refueler and receiver.
