Local number:

Notes:
In 1919 General William "Billy" Mitchell organized the first mass transcontinental air race, dubbed by the Air Service the "Transcontinental Reliability and Endurance Test." The race was originally proposed as a one way race from New York to California but this plan was changed to require a round trip, with flyers taking off from both Roosevelt Field and San Francisco, most in de Havilland DH-4s. The second plane to arrive on the west coast from New York was piloted by Harold H. George, who was accompanied by mechanic Lee M. Parrish.
Summary:
This item is a laminated and annotated strip map on cloth, nine inches wide and approximately thirty-two feet long, detailing the route taken by George and Parrish from Roosevelt Field, Long Island, New York to San Francisco, California.

Notes:
Clarence H. Walker was a wealthy young aviator living in San Mateo, CA. He started aviation as a pastime, building his own plane, but quickly decided to pursue it seriously with a better machine. He flew a Curtiss biplane at various shows in California, Hawaii, and Salt Lake City. Although a successful aviator, he suffered numerous crashes into trees, a fence, a barn, and a telegraph pole, all of which he survived. He holds the claim to being the first aviator to crash in Hawaii, on June 13, 1911 in Hilo, HI after his engine started failing shortly after takeoff.
Summary:
This collection consists of newspaper articles and 24 photographs that were photocopied or scanned out of a scrapbook about Walker. Some of the newspaper articles also pertain to Didier Masson, with whom Walker toured in California, Hawaii, and Australia.

Local number:

Notes:
In 1878 Charles Francis Ritchel, of Corry, Pennsylvania, invented an airship composed of a barrel-shaped gas bag attached to a frame with propellers, and powered by a hand crank. Ritchel was too heavy to fly the airship himself, and was thus always forced to find a pilot. The first public flight of his craft was in Philadelphia's Concert Hall in May 1878, and the first outdoor flight was in June 1878 in Hartford, Connecticut. He then went on to conduct many more successful flights both indoors and outdoors, mainly in New England.
Summary:
The cover of Harper's Weekly in New York, on 13 July 1878, depicts Ritchel's airship in flight.

Southern Four-Course Radio Range Charts 1940

Type:
Charts
Collection descriptions
Date:
1940
Topic:
Navigation (Aeronautics)
Aeronautics, Commercial
Local number:
2005-0001
Notes:
Beginning in the 1930s, visual guidelines for navigation were replaced by the four-course radio range station system. The radio range station emitted a directional signal, forming four beacons aligned with a compass, each defining a course. Pilots listened to the radio receiver and followed the radio beams from station to station along a particular route. This system had a total of 378 stations before becoming phased out during the 1950s
Summary:
This collection consists of sixteen charts that were part of the production process for four-course radio range routings. As the routings shown are outside of the original airway system developed in 1930, it is assumed that these charts represent a substantive expansion of the airway system, rather than a simple updating of existing infrastructure. The following areas are represented in Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida and Louisiana: Big Spring; Corpus Christi; Abilene; El Paso; Dallas, Ft. Worth, San Antonio; Fort Worth; San Antonio; Houston; Birmingham; Tampa; Atlanta; Miami; Mobile; Jacksonville; Shreveport; and New Orleans.

Local number:

Notes:
Floyd Kenton Smith was born in Chicago, IL in 1894 and was raised there. He and his wife, Hilder, were both trapeze artists in a circus until 1912, when Smith built his own airplane and began doing exhibition flights. When he gave up his plane to pay off debts, both he and and his wife turned to parachute jumping. Shortly thereafter, Smith got involved in the manufacture of parachutes, having designed and experimented with different models of chutes while he was a jumper. Eventually he created his own Floyd Smith Aerial Equipment Co., on behalf of which he engaged in several lawsuits against patent infringement on his designs. He was also engaged by the military during World War I to design a safer unattached parachute for new aircraft
Summary:
This collection consists of a variety of correspondence and published articles, some authored by Smith himself. One part of the correspondence is a set of letters between Arthur Lapham and Ernest Jones, on the verification of the history of the early parachute jumpers. There is also a set of letters between Floyd and Hilder Smith and Jones, and later with Lapham as well. The papers also include information on other contemporary jumpers besides Smith and his wife.

The XV-15 Tilt Rotor technology demonstrator was the culmination of efforts begun in the early 1950s to produce an aircraft that could take off, land, and hover like a helicopter, but with the speed of an airplane. The rotor pylons tilt from the vertical to horizontal to eliminate the speed barriers imposed on conventional helicopters by retreating-blade stall.
Summary:
This collection consists of the following material relating to the Bell XV-15 Tilt Rotor: four binders containing Maintenance Task Analysis Records; one binder containing maintenance manuals, including TP-28-XV-15-2; and a packet of drawings.

Supersonic transport planes
Notes:
The United States' Supersonic Transport (SST) program was initiated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in 1963. The program aimed for a Mach 2+ aircraft capable of carrying approximately 300 passengers with intercontinental range. The US aimed to outstrip the British Aerospace/Aerospatiale Concorde and Soviet Tu-144 programs through the use of advanced technology and materials. By the late 1960s contracts had been let to prime contractors Boeing (airframe) and General Electric (engines) but the program was four to five years behind the European and Soviet efforts, which had graduated to supersonic flight testing while the US program had yet to pass beyond the mockup stage. In 1971 the slow pace of technical development, environmental concerns, high costs, and questions over the commercial feasibility of the aircraft led Congress to cancel the program.
Summary:
This collection consists of seven volumes of the Boeing Company Airplane Division Commercial Supersonic Transport Proposal of January 15, 1964 (volumes A-II, A-III, A-IV Book 2, A-V, A-VII, A-VIII, and A-XI).

Local number:
XXXX-0771
Notes:
This collection consists of one 38 page publication, with a copyright date of 1944, containing a detailed description of the JRM-1. Included is information on engineering data, performance, maintenance and handling, manufacturing facilities, and experience. Throughout this publication are color illustrations detailing several different interior designs of the Martin Mars transport airplane (JRM-1), including the De Luxe Sleeper, Passenger-Cargo version, Passenger Day plane, and Cargo version.
Summary:
Manufactured by the Glenn L. Martin Company, the JRM-1 Mars (Model 170A), also known as the Martin Mars Transport, was even larger than its record setting predecessor, the Martin Mars. With the ability to carry 25,500 pounds of cargo and 105 passengers, this enormous aircraft was used by the United States Navy for overseas transport. Although the JRM-1 was primarily used as a cargo transport plane for the Navy, the Glenn L. Martin Company hoped to use the planes for the transport of not only cargo but passengers as well, and even designed the luxurious "flying hotel". The few JRM-1's left today are used as water bombers for the control of forest fires, a far cry from their original purpose

Local number:

Notes:
Henri and Camille Dreyfus, brothers from Switzerland, set up several factories devoted to the manufacture of cellulose acetate in the early 1900s. One of the uses of cellulose acetate was as aircraft dope to waterproof and harden the fabric covering airplane wings. At the onset of World War I, aircraft dope was in great demand. The Dreyfus brothers soon focused their efforts solely on the manufacture of aircraft dope and in 1917 agreed to build a factory in Cumberland, Maryland. This factory, however, was not completed until after the end of World War I.
