A Airplane Service Across the Atlantic |N June 28th passenger airplane service across the Atlantic was inaugurated. The dream and hope many years was realized when the 41i/o-ton Pan-American flying boat, Dixie Clipper* last product of engineer- ing science, took off from Long Island, N. Y., on its first regularly passenger scheduled airplane flight between this country and the Old World, opening a new era in aviation. Full carrying ca- pacity of the ship is 72 passengers with sleeping quarters for 40 passengers and flight decks comparable to a big ocean ship. Twelve years before a lone flyer, Charles Lindbergh, in the "Spirit of St. Louis," took off from New York one morning and landed in Paris next day. Others had crossed the Atlantic before Lindbergh in a non-stop flight. In 1919, Captain John Alcock of England and his American aviator, Lieut. A. W. Brown, flew from...
