Alcock and Brown

Greetings
I am a recently retired Airbus Captain living in St.John's Newfoundland, Canada. No doubt many of you are aware that June 14th is the 100th anniversary of the first non stop transatlantic flight. John Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brown left from a grass meadow just up the road from my house and arrived in Clifden Ireland roughly 16.5 hours later, thus proving it was possible to do what many of you do on a regular basis.

St.John's and Clifden are planning major celebrations to mark this historic event and I'm wondering if some of you might be interested in letting your passengers know on June 14th.
