1st airplane flight around the World...

Item # 677659

July 02, 1931

THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 2, 1931

* Wiley Post and Harold Gatty prevail
* 1st airplane flight around the World
* Hero's welcome in New York City

The top of the front page has a nice five column headline: "POST AND GATTY END THEIR RECORD WORLD FLIGHT; CIRCLED GLOBE IN 8 DAYS, 15 HOURS, 51 MINUTES; 10,000 IN WILD DEMONSTRATION AT FIELD HERE" with many subheads and map. Much more on the following pages with full page pictorial. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 56 pages, toning and some wear at the margins, should be handled with care.
