Soviet aviators -- Col. Mikhail Gromov, pilot, Maj. Andrei Yumashev, co-pilot, and Capt. Sergei Danilin, navigator -- are welcomed after breaking the nonstop flight record, flying from Moscow and landing in San Jacinto, California, via the North Pole. The trio flew over 6700 miles in 62 hours and 12 minutes. The original plan was for the airplane to land in San Diego, but fog made landing the Russians’ large monoplane on San Diego’s short runways dangerous, and so the crew landed instead in the semi-desert fields surrounding San Jacinto.Pictured are Yumashev, center, and Danilin, right.

The Army, Navy, and Marine Corps aircrafts participated in the exercise.
