Caption: Soviet transpolar flight crew, in Los Angeles, USA, in July 1937. From left to right, the three Soviet pilots are: Andrei Yumashev, Sergei Danilin and Mikhail Gromov. These pilots became celebrities in the USA and USSR after they flew an ANT-25 single-engine monoplane non-stop from Moscow, USSR, to San Jacinto, California, USA, passing over the North Pole en route. The first transpolar flight had been made on 20 June 1937, but only reached Vancouver. This flight (12-14 July) broke long-distance flying records, with the flight covering 11,500 kilometres and taking 62 hours 17 minutes.
