Seattle’s glorious spring and summer seasons of 1924 were a celebration of aerial circumnavigation. Four World Cruisers – single engine, two-seat, open-cockpit biplanes with a top speed of 100 MPH – launched from Seattle’s Sand Point Airfield on April 6, circled the globe, and returned to Seattle September 28. Today tech tycoons are taking us giant steps closer to untethering from Planet Earth. Visit Seattle back when the first steps of aviation knitted our planet together.
