Glenn Curtiss - Aviation Pioneer

U. S. Navy flying boat NC-4 became the first aircraft to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. The flight started in New York and ended after 19 days in Lisbon. This included time for stops. U.S. Navy ships were stationed along the flight course to rescue aviators in case of any emergency. The accomplishment was later eclipsed by nonstop flights.
