Add Max Bid
Douglas Corrigan was an American aviator born in Galveston, Texas. He was nicknamed “Wrong Way” in 1938. After a transcontinental flight from Long Beach, California to New York City, he flew from Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn, New York to Ireland though his flight plan was filed to return to Long Beach. He claimed his unauthorized flight was due to a navigational error, caused by heavy cloud cover that obscured landmarks and low-light conditions, causing him to misread his compass.
Presented is a book, “That’s My Story” signed on the inside page by Corrigan in black pen (pers.). The cover is detached and well-worn with missing pieces etc. Another signature is presented on a small 3×5 black and white photo of Corrigan to complete the collection.
