Caption

Soviet ANT-25 transpolar aircraft. This is the aircraft in which a Soviet crew carried out the first transpolar flight over the Arctic, from 17-20th June 1937. They flew from Moscow, USSR, to Vancouver, Washington State, USA, in a flight lasting over 63 hours, covering a distance of over 8500 kilometres. The crew were Valery Chkalov (pilot), Georgy Baidukov (co-pilot) and Alexander Belyakov (navigator). The three aviators became celebrities in the USA and the USSR, though later that year, another Soviet crew would set a new distance record by flying over the Arctic from Moscow to California. Photographed in Russia.
