This was one leg of the flight that had started in Liberty, New York and that would eventually take the aviators to Copenhagen, Denmark a few day later.

Motson also highlighted the piece on page 65 in his BNAPS Exhibit Series No. 54 revised book, “Newfoundland Airmail Stamps and Airmail Flights: 1918-1948,”. An excellent collection for the specialist, or for anyone wanting to expand on it. Everything is scanned, including backs of items that show more information on them.
