Lithuania 1935 ? Vaitkus photos and handwritten note
In September 1935, Lithuanian-American aviator Felix Waitkus (1907-1956) had attempted a non-stop solo flight from New York to Kaunas in a Lockheed Vega Lituanica II. Due to unfavorable weather conditions, he ran out of fuel, and was forced to crash land in Ireland; nevertheless, the flight was considered a major success (only sixth Transatlantic non-stop solo crossing), and he was given a hero’s welcome in Kaunas.
Two small photos showing Lituanica II on departure, along with the lengthy handwritten and signed reply to a letter from an aerophilatelist (Bill Schneider, a respected airmail dealer, and aviation enthusiast). The note should be of special interest to Lithuanian airmail collectors, as it clarifies the status of rare “Oro Pastas Lithuanica” overprints (Sanabria 129).
