Historic Flight Foundation, 10719 Bernie Webber Drive, Mukilteo WA
David Lednicer concludes our winter series with a tale of cutting-edge aeronautical engineering and political intrigue. In 1931, the Soviet Revolutionary Military Council directed the development of a long-range record-breaking aircraft. The ANT-25 ended up making two record breaking flights in 1937, in June from Moscow to Vancouver Washington and then in July from San Jacinto, California.
