JAMES C. FITZMAURICE
Co-pilot of the first east-west transatlantic flight.
Autograph Note signed: "To American Legion Post No. 60/Logansport, Indiana/Best wishes/Sincerely/Jas. C. Fitzmaurice/Columbus/28-2-30", 6¼x3¼. Irish pilot James C. Fitzmaurice (1898-1965) was determined to cross the Atlantic on an east-west flight, which was considerably more difficult at the time than crossing west to east as Lindbergh had done 11 months earlier. On April 12, 1928, Fitzmaurice, Bavarian Captain Hermann Koehl and Baron Guenther von Huenfeld took off from Baldonnel, Ireland aboard the Bremen, an all-metal Junkers monoplane. On April 13, 1928, they landed on the frozen surface of a small lake in Greenly Island in the Strait of Belle Isle on the Gulf of St. Lawrence between Labrador and Newfoundland. The Bremen had made its historic flight in 36 hours and two minutes. Mounting stains and light pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Lightly soiled, irregular top edge, else fine.
