  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown.

    Title reads: "French Fliers Win $25,000 Air Prize. Dallas, Tex. - Costes and Bellonte complete first one-stop flight from Paris for rich reward."

    Dallas, Texas, United States of America.

    French aviators Costes and Bellonte land their biplane in Texas. They have won a prize for flying from Europe to Texas, with only one stop over in New York.

    The plane is greeted by crowds as it lands (it has a Question Mark '?' painted on the side). The pilots climb out and are lifted shoulder high by the cheering crowd.

    N.B. I think this is 1930.

    N.B. The famous French airmen Dieudone Costes and Maurice Bellonte made record breaking flights in the late 1920s and early 1930s.
