The FIrst Nonstop Transatlantic Flight from Newfoundland to Ireland – John Alcock and Arthur Brown

Hello, and welcome back to Newfoundpod, a bite-sized podcast about Newfoundland. I’m your host, Debbie Wiseman, and today I’m going to talk to you about the first non-stop transatlantic flight, which originated here in Newfoundland 100 years ago. I’ll also tell you about the plans to celebrate the anniversary here locally.
