LEIGH WADE. ALS: "Leigh Wade", 1p, 5¼x8¼. No place, 1978 October 11. To Mr. Bomsey. In full: "Relative the 3 balloonist crossing (first) of the Atlantic as for comparison-very much. One lighter than air & the other heavier than air - or say powered & non-powered. Both have their merits. Think of their preparations and dependence on weather. Then ours by power also required study or just preparation." The helium-filled Double Eagle II balloon, manned by Ben Abruzzo, Maxie Anderson and Larry Newman, made the first balloon flight across the Atlantic August 11-17, 1978. Major General Wade compares this flight with the 1903 Wright Brothers flight. Wade was the pilot of the Douglas World cruiser Boston on the world's first successful global flight in 1924. Fine condition.
