Plane In Which Flier Seeks East-West Record
New York, N.Y. - Arthur Bussy of Royersford, Pennsylvania, is shown in his tri-motored low wing Bellanca monoplane just before taking off from Floyd Bennet Field this morning for a non-stop flight to Burbank, Cal., in an effort to break the East-West record of 10 hours, 2 minutes, 55.7 seconds, made a year ago by Alexander P. de Seversky. Bussy's plane has a top speed of 290 mph, considerably lower than the speed of the new Army bombers and not much above that of some commercial transports.
