Bulova 1938 Doug Corrigan
When 31-year-old Douglas Groce Corrigan took off from Brooklyn's Floyd Bennett Field on July 17, 1938 in a modified Curtiss Robin, He carried two chocolate bars, two boxes of fig bars, a quart of water and a U.S. map with the route from New York to California marked out. Corrigan, who had spent three years trying to get permission to fly from New York to Dublin Ireland had been told that He could fly nonstop from New York to California, but an Ocean crossing was out of the question.
It was a foggy morning, Corrigan flew into the haze and disappeared. Twenty-eight hours later He landed in Dublin and instantly became a National hero.
