Summary

The Model F "Seagull," developed by Glenn Curtiss, was among the first successful flying boats made in the United States. More than 150 of the craft were built, with many seeing service in the U.S. Navy. At a time when landing strips were rare but lakes were plentiful, water-based aircraft were practical alternatives to wheeled planes.

Airplane

Date Made

1928

Summary

The Bremen was the first aircraft to fly non-stop from Europe to North America. Hermann Koehl, Ehrenfried Von Hunefeld and James Fitzmaurice took off from Baldonnel, Ireland, on April 12, 1928, and touched down on Greenly Island, Canada, the next day. The east-to-west crossing, made against the prevailing winds, was more difficult than the flight from North America to Europe.

Automobile

Date Made

1928

Summary

Franklin automobiles, built from 1902 until 1934, were distinguished by their air-cooled engines. When Charles Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic with an air-cooled motor in 1927, Franklin played up the connection by introducing an "Airman" sedan and giving this example to the aviator. In turn, Lindbergh gave the car to Henry Ford in 1940 for inclusion in Henry Ford Museum.
