May 24th, 2010 Andrew Rhynes The Secret Land & When the Blind See Host: Andrew Rhynes Show: Lone Ranger Date: July 01, 1938 & July 04, 1938 Phone: (707) 98 OTRDW or (707) 986-8739 Stars: Earle Graser (Lone Ranger) John Todd (Tonto) HISTORY NOTE: On July 10, 1938, Howard Hughes completed a flight around the world in just 91 hours (3 days, 19 hours), beating the previous record by more than four hours. Taking off from New York City, he continued to Paris, Moscow, Omsk, Yakutsk, Anchorage, Minneapolis, and continued to New York City. For this flight he did not fly an aircraft of his own design but a Lockheed Super Electra (a twin-engine transport with a four-man crew) fitted with all of the latest radio and navigational equipment. Hughes wanted the flight to be a triumph of technology, illustrating that safe, long-distance air travel was possible
