    Milton Reynolds was an American entrepreneur, known for introducing the first ballpoint pen to be sold in the U.S.

    The aircraft seen here was a converted Douglas A26 bomber, Serial Number NX67834.

    The pilot, Captain William Odom is also frequently credited as Bill Odom. T Carroll Salee is also often credited as Tex Salee and Tex Sallee.

    Later in 1947 the aircraft flew around the world in 79 hours, a record time for a twin-engined propellor aircraft.
