At 4am on June 24 1930, four men set out from Portmarnock Beach, Ireland, in a bid to cross the Atlantic. They touched down 32 hours later at Harbour Grace in Newfoundland, USA, triumphant. They then flew to Oakland, California, USA, which completed the pilot's personal circumnavigation of the globe. From left: radio operator Charles S. W. Stannage, pilot Charles Kingsford-Smith (1897- 1935), Southern Cross designer Anthony Fokker (1890-1939), co-pilot Evert Van Dijk (1893-1986) and navigator Jonathan Patrick Saul.
