Boy Air Champ
New bot king of the air is Eddie Schneider, 18-year-old Jersey City, New Jersey, high school student. The youthful aviator is pictured above as he landed at Roosevelt Field, Long Island, with three new junior flying records in his grasp. His time of 29 hours and 41 minutes for a New York to Los Angeles flight, 27 hours and 19 minutes for the round trip beats the marke set by the late Frank Goldsborough.
