Anne's Great Aunt Grace left a diary of her experiences as one of the few passengers (including Amelia Earhart and Charles Lindberg) on the Transcontinental Air Transport Company's inaugural air and rail cross-country trip that departed from New York on July 7, 1929.
Imagine an airplane with wicker passenger seats and cabin attendants shouting through megaphones to be heard over the engines. Come learn about all the events leading up to this groundbreaking enterprise, and what happened after!
A historical footnote: The Ford Tri-Motor airplane that was part of the cross-country adventure still exists and is being restored. For a short video about the plane CLICK HERE.
