Description

Exceptionally rare and historic photo from the billionaire’s 1938 round-the-world flight

Exquisite vintage glossy 10 x 8 photo of Howard Hughes with the crew from his 1938 flight around the world, signed in ink by all pictured: Howard Hughes, crew members Harry Connor, Tommy Thurlow, Dick Stoddard, and Edward Lund, and operations manager Al Lodwick. In fine condition. Though covers signed by this group are sometimes seen, signed photos are few and far between-this being the first we have ever encountered.
