AVIATION—HAWAII.
Album containing approximately 160 gelatin silver prints, 80 x 120 mm or smaller, 1920s, mostly captioned below, period boards, worn.

Compiled by a US soldier posted to Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, the album includes 8 striking images of the Southern Cross and her crew during the first trans-Pacific flight in June 1928. Australian aviator Sir Charles Kingsford Smith flew from California to Queensland, stopping to refuel at Wheeler Field near Schofield Barracks. 4 photographs record the Maitland-Hegenberger flight of June 1927, the first flight to Hawaii from the US mainland. A few images show Ernest Smith, who crash-landed onto the south shore of Molokai within a month of Maitand and Hegenberger. 11 images show surviving planes and crews in the Dole Derby, the disastrous air race covering the same route in August 1927. Together with an ephemera scrapbook compiled by a member of the Army and Navy YMCA in Honolulu.
