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.
