first pacific flight crossing: glorious belly flop

tags: ,

Aerial circus star Clyde Pangborn and playboy Hugh Herndon, Jr., captured the Japanese prize with a glorious belly-flop in Wenatchee, Wash., in 1931.

I passed this hangar while faffing around in East Wenatchee.   Then discovered this colourful article on the    HistoryNet    (above title).   Local Washington State boy Mr. Pangborn was quite a character,   he went on to  join the RAF (Royal Air Force)
