“Two years before Lindbergh flew his New York to Paris feat, Jose Navarro proposed an airliner whose wingspan would be 185 feet, requiring a 38 man crew, nine engines, a bar on each of several decks, separate dining rooms, sleeping compartments, and electric kitchens! Here was a man well ahead of the times!”
