Large 8x10" b&w glossy press photo of Byrd's Fokker Tri-Motor on takeoff, likely for his 1927 trans-Atlantic flight. Signed boldly in black ink above the aft fuselage is "R.E. Byrd". Byrd's accomplishments in aviation and exploration are legendary and will not be repeated here. Press agency rubber stamp from International Newsreel on the back. Photo condition is very good; one triangular corner chip as shown.
