* 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.
