Top: The Winnie Mae, the airplane in which Wiley Post (1899-1935) set a world record in July 1931 for flying around the world. Post made the first solo flight around the world in 1933 in the same airplane. Below is hanger 3 in Floyd Bennett Field, apparently his starting point for the flights. Click for an excellent history of Post. (Courtesy Andrea Eldred)
