The top of the front page has a four column headline: "FLIERS CROSS PACIFIC IN 27 1/2 HOURS; REACH HAWAII WITH FUEL SUPPLY LOW; CALL IT A PERFECT TRIP, NO TROUBLE" with subheads and photo. Much more on page 2 with loads of text. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 34 pages, light toning at the margins, a little irregular along the spine, generally nice.
