Los Angeles, Jan. 4, 1931 --

Edna Cooper and Bobbi Trout
Bobbi Trout and Edna Cooper, actress and aviatrix, set out to break Bobbi and Elinor Smith's previous in-flight refueling record of 42 hours. They flew the monoplane Lady Rolph. After five days (122 hours) in the air, they landed to a crowd of cameras and news reporters. During their stay aloft, they covered over 7370 miles at an average speed of 60 miles per hour. A total of 1138 gallons of gasoline and 34 gallons of oil were transferred to them by a refueling ship piloted by Bud Hussey and Ralph DeRose. They also received supplies and food during the 22 contacts made with the refueling plane. Click here to view the incredible Paramount newsreel.
