Vintage original press photo, 9x7", b&w.  Lengthy press release on reverse introduces Lieut. Murray B. Dilley standing beside Claire Vance built "Flying Wing".  Claims are that the top speed is 165 mph with a range of nearly 8,000 miles. (Wow!)  Release is dated 6/1/34 and it was predicted that Dilley would take off about three weeks later.  Excellent.
