THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 23, 1933
* Aviator Wiley Post - airplane pilot
* First person to fly solo around the world
* The landing in New York City (1st report)
The front page has a 4 column headline: "POST ARRIVES SAFELY IN NEW YORK, CIRCLING WORLD IN 7 DAYS, 19 HOURS; MOLLISONS ARE FLYING THE ATLANTIC" with many subheads and related photo. More on this on pages 2 & 3 (see).
This is the complete Sunday edition so rather thick. Light toning and minor wear at the margin, generally nice.
