First Solo Transcontinental Flight
to Joanna's page
   
"The Solo Transcontinental Flight from California started on October 22, 1929, was completed on Nov. 6, 1929 in Boston so the paper article would be dated Nov. 7, 1929. It is interesting to note the error in reporting where it states 'They left the west coast on Nov. 6' when that's actually when they arrived. If that were so, that would really be a record. The actual dates I have verified from her Pilots Log Book."--from John Shankle, who provided the article.
