Alexxandro Bloch’s photostream on Flickr.This was originally a Second Life Tumblr. Its gotten a little away from me, but here are some pictures from THE GRID.
Massachusetts-born aviator Roscoe Turner wearing a high-altitude coat and what appear to be animal-paw gloves.
Turner set the east to west transcontinental airspeed record at 12 hours and 33 minutes, from New York to Burbank, California, on November 14, 1930. Turner bettered by two hours and 17 minutes the former mark set by Frank Hawks. He also won the Bendix Trophy in 1933 and the Thompson trophy in 1934, 1938 and 1939.
