The Bulova Doug Corrigan Watch
Douglas "Wrong Way" Corrigan
After applying for permission for a trans-Atlantic flight several times and being denied, Corrigan (of Irish descent) took off on July 17, 1938 from Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn, New York with a flight plan filed to return to his home in California. He later landed at Baldonnel Airport, in Dublin, after a 28-hour, 13-minute flight.
After receiving a severe backlash from U.S. flight officials, Corrigan claimed he accidentally flew the wrong way, and stuck with his story. Thereafter he was dubbed "Wrong Way" Corrigan.
