On April 6, 1924, four pilots and four copilot/mechanics left Sand Point on Lake Washington near Seattle in four aircraft for a 175-day westward circumnavigation of the planet. It was the first successful circumnavigation of the globe with a 100-year anniversary just two years from this writing. Only two planes and crews finished the route. One aircraft got separated from the others by a thrown rod early in the flight but crashed into a mountain in Alaska while trying to catch up (the crew survived). The other aircraft capsized and was lost while under tow after losing power near the Faroe Islands. The two remaining aircraft flew the entire route and returned to Sand Point, Washington on September 28, 1924. For more information and topics covered, please visit www.digitalthemepark.com

I don’t want to have to jump around to different sites just to plan a flight. If you provided the flight particulars and a flight plan here, probably more people would participate. I know I would.

Greetings Fondre69,

Good idea. I’ll pass this on and ask the event planner if this is something they would want to post. I know they are getting down to last few flights. It has been quite a journey and an interesting story of the era as well.

In the mean time, feel free to join them for the remaining flights.
