Winnie Mae Newsreels

Pathé sponsored the 1931 around-the-world flight of the Winnie Mae. Their rooster logo was adorned the side of the Vega and they provided a camera and film to Harold Gatty. Although all of the American newsreel companies followed the flight, Pathe was the most complete in their coverage. This sampling depicts Post's and Gatty's departure, their ticker tape parade through the streets of New York, and an interview summarizing their flight, narrated primarily by Gatty.
