WALTER HINTON
1931 airmail envelope signed by Walter Hinton, co-pilot of the first trans-Atlantic flight in 1919
Envelope signed "Walter Hinton" in blue ink. 6½x3¾ airmail envelope. Postmarked Des Moines, Iowa, March 25, 1931 and Orlando, Florida, May 15, 1931. Addressed to A. H. Baker, Orlando, Florida. One 5¢ purple-and-white stamp affixed. In May 1919, Hinton (1888-1981) was the co-pilot of the U.S. Navy's NC-4, one of four Navy Curtiss flying boats built during WWI to provide patrol cover for American shipping in the Atlantic against German U-boats. The NC-4, with a crew of six, left Rockaway Beach, Queens, New York City on May 8, 1919, reaching Portugal on May 27, 1919 in the first crossing of the Atlantic by air. During the 1920s, Hinton achieved more aviation first: exploring the Arctic by balloon, making the first flight from North to South America, and exploring the Amazon rainforest by hydroplane. He was founding President of the Aviation Institute of America (1927), and an influential writer and public speaker. Lightly toned and soiled. Envelope is sealed and empty. Normal postal stamps. Otherwise in fine condition.
