Alaska Flying Expedition

The U.S. Army's 1920 New York to Nome Flight

Stan Cohen

One of the most daring aviation adventures took place in the summer of 1920 when eight daredevil U.S. Army Air Service fliers made a historic flight from Long Island, New York, to the barren coast on the Bering Sea and the famous Alaskan gold mining camp of Nome. The approximate round-trip distance was 9,000 miles, much of it over uncharted country.
