Eddie Rickenbacker lost at sea....
Item # 658651
October 24, 1942
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, October 24, 1942
* Eddie Rickenbacker goes missing (1st report)
* American World War I airplane fighter ace
* Would be adrift at sea for 24 days
The front page has a great banner headline announcing: "RICKENBACKER LOST AT SEA" with subheads. Nice for display. Article continues on page 2 with photo and related photo. First report coverage on Captain Eddie Rickenbacker going missing after his airplane went down in the Pacific Ocean. He would be adrift at sea for 24 days. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Complete with all 34 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
