1942 Eddie Rickenbacker found alive....

Item # 701177

November 14, 1942

HERALD EXPRESS, WAR EXTRA, Los Angeles, November 14, 1942

* Eddie Rickenbacker found alive
* American World War I airplane fighter ace
* Adrift at sea for 24 days

The front page has great banner headline: "SAVE RICKENBACKER, 5 OTHERS FROM SEA" with subhead. Pictorial and banner heading on page 3. And more on page 4. First report coverage on the rescue of Captain Eddie Rickenbacker after he was adrift at sea for 24 days. Nice to have in a West Coast publication.

Incomplete issue containing the 1st 2 loose leafs (pages 1-4) only but all Rickenbacker reporting is present. Irregular along the left margin, small piece torn away at the bottom left corner, nice for display as such.
