Jim Mollison Atlantic Ocean flight....

Item # 638884

August 20, 1932

PRESCOTT JOURNAL MINER, Arizona, August 20, 1932

* Jim Mollison makes it
* Airplane - aviation
* 1st solo Atlantic flight (W to E)

The front page has a banner headline: "LONDON FLYER MAKES NEW BRUNSWICK SAFELY" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the first solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean from West to East. Maybe not as significant as Lindbergh's flight but still a aviation first. Nice for display.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 6 pages, Light toning, minor margin wear, generally nice.
