Smithsonian: The First Around The World Flight

From the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum / YouTube page:
Dr. Jeremy Kinney, curator in the Aeronautics Division at the National Air and Space Museum, discusses the Douglas World Cruiser “Chicago” and the first flights around the world. This informal gallery talk was recorded on October 20, 2010 as part of the National Air and Space Museum’s “Ask an Expert” lecture series.

Roger has plenty of stories to tell about the aviators of years gone by, and the golden age of aviation when anything was possible. We love hearing him talk about the heroes of the past, some famous and others not so -- courageous pioneers who made aviation what it is today.
