Charles Lindbergh flew from New York to Paris from May 20 – 21, 1927. Five years later Amelia Earhart made the same trip solo, and is celebrated as the first woman to do so. Pick up any U.S. history book and both these stories are there.
But an event that happened 19 years before Lindbergh’s famed flight, 24 years before Earhart’s historic journey and 6 years before Sir Ernest Shackleton’s extraordinary crossing of Antarctica is virtually unknown.
The Greatest Auto Race on Earth is now completed with international distributors on board. DVDs will be available soon.
2008 marks the 100th anniversary.
