Beautiful copy of the 1973 First Across! The U.S. Navy's Transatlantic Flight of 1919 by Richard K. Smith. The cover tells that the novel is the recipient of the: "1972 HISTORY MANUSCRIPT AWARD" presented by the "AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF AERONAUTICS AND ASTRONAUTICS". The story is of the six-man crew that took part in the first transatlantic flight, which took almost three weeks to complete. The book details the crew and their aircraft, as well as their use of primitive radio communications and strategies of navigation in flight. This hardcover example is complete with photographic images and dust jacket is intact. The cover page reads that it was printed by the: "NAVAL INSTITUTE PRESS", "ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND", "COPYRIGHT 1973, BY THE UNITED STATES NAVAL INSTITUTE".
