Detailed Product Description
A VERY NICE COPY OF THIS CLASSIC MAGAZINE:
 
Articles in this magazine are as follows:

The Aerial Conquest of Everest

The first Mount Everest flight expedition was undertaken by Sir Douglas Douglas-Hamilton and David McIntyre in April 1933. They took off on an open cabin flight at 8:25 am on 3 April from Lalbalu Airfield and returned at 11:30 marking it as the first successful flight over Everest. It was financed by Lucy, Lady Houston and organized by Stewart Blacker. The flight made quite a stir among the flying and climbing communities. The pilots made a film of the flight and peak, which won an Oscar that year as a short subject.
