Miss Veedol - 79 Years Ago Today

An email crossed my desk today with this bit of history...


Oct. 5, 1931 was the first time an aviator ever flew non-stop across the Pacific Ocean. That aviator was Clyde Edward Pangborn, native of Bridgeport, Washington, along with his not very able co-pilot, Hugh Herndon. And he did it without any sort of spells, charms, or other magical intervention.


Miss Veedol - the airplane.


Clyde Pangborn - the man.
