Schneider Is After Record
Municipal Airport, Los Angeles, August 21, 1930 (Associated Press) Eddie Schneider, newly crowned east-west junior transcontinental speed king, took off at 6:17:30 a.m. (Pacific Standard Time) today in an effort to establish a new west-east junior transcontinental air record. He planned to make his first stop at Albuquerque, New Mexico. Despite a load of 140 gallons of gasoline, Schneider pulled his little monoplane into a fast climb and quickly was out of sight.
