The Winnie Mae

[The Winnie Mae]

In 1930 F.C. Hall, a wealthy Oklahoma oilman, bought a Lockheed Vega model 5-C. The plane was nicknamed Winnie Mae, after Hall’s daughter; and Hall’s personal pilot was none other than Wiley Post.

Wiley Post and the Winnie Mae set twice the record for flying around the world: the first time in June, 1931 (an 8 days, 16 hours flight with navigator Harold Gatty) and the second time in July, 1933 (a solo flight of 7 days, 19 hours).

Post and Gatty published a book about their journey, titling it Around the World in Eight Days, a play on the title of Jules Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days. Will Rogers contributed an introduction to the book.

The Winnie Mae is now in the collection of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC; a full size replica of the plane is in the new Oklahoma History Center, in Oklahoma City.
