Round-the-World Attempted Flight

Edward F. Schlee and William S. Brock

Schlee & Brock departed from Detroit, Michigan via New York to Newfoundland. They departed Harbor Grace and arrived at Croydon Airport, London England.

They continued their flight across Europe, India and China arriving in Tokyo in 18 days, flying a total of 12,995 miles in 145.5 flying hours. Bad weather forced them to abandon their round- the-world attempt. Rather than trying to cross the Pacific, they returned to New York by steamer.

Air Cover postmarked Detroit Michigan, August 8, 1929 tying C-11 was autographed by Schlee.
