French Fliers Off In Race For New Endurance Mark
Paris.... Here is the French plane 'Hyphen-2D' which left Le Bourget Airport with a crew of three on an attempt to establish a new mark for distance. The plane carried as crew, Marcel Doret, Joseph Lebrix, and Rene Mesmin, who hope to reach Tokio without a stop and thus better the nonstop flight record set by Russell Boardman and John Polando, who flew from New York to Turkey. A second team of fliers left at the same time from Le Bourget in a race to achieve the new honor.
