Archive of Sikorsky S-35 Wreck Including Photographs and a Book Recovered from the Crash Site
[1926]. Photographs. Archive includes 17 early silver gelatin photographs and a book recovered from the crash site, including THE ONLY KNOWN IMAGE OF THIS RARE AIRCRAFT TAXIING FOR TAKE-OFF. The photographs include four images of the Sikorsky S-35 before its ill-fated attempted transatlantic flight, one of the plane taxing on the runway, one of the Sikorsky hanger, ten of the wreckage, and one of an unidentified person with an automobile. The wreckage photographs are quite detailed and graphic, showing the extent of the huge fire that engulfed the plane when it cracked during takeoff due to landing gear malfunction on 21 September 1926. The book recovered from the crash is PRACTICAL AVIATION INCLUDING CONSTRUCTION AND OPERATION by Andrew White, 1918, Wireless Press, 197pages with illustrations. Of the four members of the crew, Capt. Rene Fonck and co-pilot Lt. Lawrence Curtin escaped. Veteran mechanic Jacob Islamoff and radio operator Charles Clavier were killed. The plane had been heavily modified to attempt to win the $25,000 Orteig Prize for the first non-stop flight from New York to Paris, won the following year by Charles Lindbergh in The Spirit of St. Louis. Most images slightly light, one torn in half and missing right side, book with heavy wear, as one would expect of a well-used book that survived a plane crash. Good to Very Good .
