1st 300+ MPH airplane flight....

Item # 564306

September 5, 1933

THE NEW YORK TIMES, New York, September 5, 1933  This 36 page newspaper has two column headlines on the front page that include: "Woman Flier Killed in Air Race; Wedell Sets World Speed Mark" "...Wedell Makes Land Plane Record of 305.33--Flies at 316.55 on One Lap"

Tells of the 1st time in aviation history that a airplane was flown over 300 M.P.H. Nice to have in this famous NYC title.

Other news of the day throughout. Light browning with little margin wear, otherwise good.
