The flight was piloted by John Alcock. They covered a distance of 3040 kilometres from Canada to Ireland in 16 hours, using a Vickers Vimy bomber. The plane crash-landed in a bog, but both men were unhurt. They received a prize of 10,000 pounds and were both knighted a few days later by King George V. Brown never flew again.
