Weir, Ethel. “Pioneers of the Air.” The Newfoundland Quarterly 38.2 (October 1938): 12.

Despite common perception of Charles Lindbergh as the first person to complete a trans-Atlantic flight (New York to Paris in 1927), John Alcock and Arthur Brown actually deserve this renown. The pair flew from St. John’s, Newfoundland, to Clifden, Country Galway, Ireland, leaving 100 years ago today, on June 14th, 1919, and arriving on June 15th.
