“Cal Rogers started the first successful transcontinental flight across the United States on September 17, 1911. He was trying to win a $50,000 prize put up by William Randolph Hearst, for the first pilot who could fly coast to coast in thirty days or less. It took him 84 days. What's funny is that his actual flying time was 3 days, 10 hours, and 4 minutes! In that 4,321 mile trip, he took off 68 times and crashed 15 times! Talk about perseverance! What a lesson!”
