Title
Photograph of the landing of Howard Hughes' Lockheed 14 aircraft, New York, July 14, 1938
Description
The black and white, aerial view of Howard Hughes' Lockheed 14 aircraft performing its final landing on the Round the World flight at Floyd Bennett Airport, New York. Typed onto a piece of paper attached to the image: "Journey's End: This airplane view records the end of Howard Hughes' history-making dash around the world in three days, nineteen hours. To the right of the Administration Building at Floyd Bennett Field, Long Island, New York, can be seen the globe-girdling monoplane surrounded by a ring of policemen. The foreground provides an accurate idea of the size of the crowd which stormed the field to welcome home the fliers. Credit Line (ACME)."
