Jack Frye spends $30,000,000
Jack Frye and TWA are first to receive 36 new Connie's, routing their first commercial flights coast to coast in 10 hours, and from New York to Paris in less than 14 hours. Trans Atlantic air travel time is now officially being reduced quite significantly since the launching of Stratoliner service in 1940. The photo on the front page of the September 1945 Skyliner issue below is of the signing of this new contract by Frye and Lockheed officials in Washington, DC.
