China Clipper

November is National Aviation History month!

Fun fact: On this day in 1935, The China Clipper’s first transpacific crossing departed Alameda, flown by Captain Edwin Musick. At the end of the six-day, 8,210-mile trip, the China Clipper reached Manila on November 29th, with a total flying time of 59 hours and 48 minutes. There was a one-day layover at Guam because of a mixup over the effect of the International Date Line!
