They tried to become the first non-stop flight across the Pacific Ocean, in the airplane named Miss Veedol. After a flight of 41 hours and 10 minutes, she landed safely in Wenatchee, Washington USA, completing the great achievement.
At that time, Japan was in the Showa Depression (1930 – 1931) and the Tohoku Region had a hard year due to a bad crop and a famine. However, the people of Misawa village were actively performing volunteer work, such as runway maintenance. They were very grateful for the two Americans.
