Item # 566497

November 18, 1940

THE NEW YORK TIMES, New York, NY, November 18, 1940

* Green Bay Packers
* 1st to travel by airplane
* NFL football

This 38 page newspaper has a five column headline on page 24: "Early Touchdown by Giants Defeats Packers" with subheads, photo and stats. (see photos)

Though not mentioned in the reporting of this game, this was the very first time a professional football team traveled by airplane to play in an away game. Thus the Green Bay Packers were the first NFL team to travel in this manner.

Other news of the day throughout. Light browning, otherwise in good condition.
