Hmmm...mass dis-rating on 16th June 1933 whilst in scattered ice floes. There's happy :( A few more occurred the next day too.
Just took a snip of the nightmare for the meantime :)

Another little, glanced aside. Or so I thought. This turns out to be a full-on adventure of epic proportions.  I'll return to this once I've finished chasing ice reports. 

'June 3, 1933: Mattern flew a rebuilt "Century of Progress", largely a different aircraft, and this time solo, from Floyd Bennett Field across the Atlantic. On June 14, 1933, he made a forced landing in Siberia, where the "Century" was abandoned. He was eventually rescued by Eskimos and flown to Nome, Alaska, by Sigizmund Levanevsky. Mattern flew the rest of the way back to New York.'
