Item # 647814
May 13, 1927
THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 13, 1927
* Charles Lindbergh to be 1st
* Race for Atlantic Ocean flight
* Charles Nungesser
The top of the front page has a four column headline: "AIR RACE TO PARIS WAITS ON WEATHER; CHAMBERLIN AND LINDBERGH SET TO GO; HOPE IN NEWFOUNDLAND AND NUNGESSER CLUE" with many subheads. Reporting continues on pages 2 & 3 with related pictorial and map. Loads of text, too much to photograph all. Coverage on Charles Lindbergh and others getting ready to be the 1st to fly across the Atlantic Ocean solo. Also much on the disappearance of Charles Nungesser.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete with all 48 pages, a few binding slits along the spine, otherwise very nice.
