NOTE: This monograph, The First Flight Across the Atlantic, has been out of print for many years, and paper copies are no longer available through NHHC or the Government Printing Office. This electronic version has been placed online because it is an excellent reference source for information about early naval aviation in general. As an electronic document, there is a compromise between picture quality and the capability of the OCR software to correctly identify the text in the monograph, which results in the picture quality being less than optimum. Copies of most of the original pictures, however, are available through the Navy Photograph Collection at the National Archives and the NHHC Photo Section.
