Douglas World Cruisers
3080 - Douglas World Cruisers
Shown here as the aeroplanes begin to arrive at Chignik, Alaska, the first flight around the world was flown by United States Army Air Service pilots in specially-built Douglas World Cruisers, DWCs, between 6 April and 28 September 1924. The magnitude of that flight at the time is comparable to a moon landing today.
