Book Description
On June 14, 1919, A Vickers Vimy biplane lumbered into the air from a field in St. John's, Newfoundland. More than sixteen hours and 3,000 kilometers later, the British crew of John Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brown brought the aircraft to a crash landing in a bog near Clifden, Ireland. The race to fly across the Atlantic Ocean had been won.The Big Hop tells the stories of aviators who challenged the Atlantic Ocean between 1919 and the end of the Second World War, with a focus on the role played by Newfoundland and Labrador. It tells how these pioneers lived, and, all too often, how they died in their quest for glory.
