John Macready: Aviation Pioneer - At the Earth's Ceiling

John Macready's record-breaking transcontinental flight, 2,500 non-stop miles, in aviation's infancy, will capture the imagination of anyone intrigued by the pioneering spirit. On May 2, 1923, John Macready and his business partner Oakley Kelly skipped off a Long Island runway in their overloaded Fokker T-2 Transport.

John Macready: Aviation Pioneer - At the Earth's Ceiling

Barely clearing the air field's hangar roofs, the plane's Liberty engine was wide open. The aircraft grudgingly rose by inches. They landed 27 hours later in San Diego.

During the unsophisticated, dangerous flying era of the 1920s, pilots who took to the skies risked their lives to the whims of nature and the temperaments of untested machines. But the daring young aviators with the U.S. Army Air Service at Ohio's McCook Field dedicated themselves to taming the wild beast of flight.
