Alcock and Brown’s non-stop Trans-Atlantic Mail flight, 14 June 1919.

‘The first successful non-stop Trans-Atlantic Mail flight was made by Captain John Alcock and Lieutenant Arthur W Brown. Leaving Newfoundland on the 14 June with their Vickers-Vimy bipane they landed at Clifden, Ireland, 16 hours 12 minutes later, 200 letters were carried. An interesting incident of the flight was that during a fog they turned over and flew upside down until they “looked up”, and - as it seemed - saw the sea above them.’ Alcock and Brown flew 1960 miles.
