Navigator on the first transatlantic flight in 1919.
Large Photograph inscribed and signed: "To my Good Friend/Ralph Rugh/Walter Hinton". B/w with sepia hue, 9½x13. The U.S. Navy's NC-4 Flying Boat made the first transatlantic flight from May 8-27, 1919. Lieutenant Commander Albert C. Read was the Commander and Lieutenant Walter Hinton was the navigator. The NC-4 took off from Naval Air Station Rockaway on Long Island, New York and after a refueling stop, engine repairs and weather delays, landed in Lisbon, Portugal. The aircraft flew at 90 mph maximum with the crew exposed to the elements in open, unheated cockpits. Creased and torn at margins, not touching the writing or his face, with surface nicks at the left border's crease. Adequate contrast. Overall, fine condition.
