First Nonstop Flight Across USA
First nonstop flight across the country. A modified commercial transport plane is brought out and gassed up. The pilot puts on his parachute. The propellor is spun, and the heavy plane takes off. A line crosses a map of the United States, and the plan lands in San Diego. A crowd greets them and cheers.
