RUSSIA Flight Covers
1939 (28 Apr) Non-stop Transatlantic flight, Moscow-New York, by Soviet aviators Gen.Kokkinaki and Major Gordienko on their airplane "Moskva". After successfully crossing the Atlantic, the aviators were forced (due to bad weather over Labrador) to fly at 30,000 feet using oxygen masks. Their supply of oxygen was nearly depleted and at high altitude, the radio equipment froze up. Eventually, Gen. Kokkinaki fainted and his navigator Gordienko took over the controls and managed an emergency landing at Miscou Island, off the coast of New Brunswick. After repairs, the "Moskva" proceeded to New York. This postcard (Lenin Mausoleum) is one of only 32 carried on this flight, with Registry label No.67, addressed to B.N. Nikolsky, with Miscou Lighthouse N.B. Apr 28, 39 arrival pmk, v.f. "Moscow to Miscou" card
