Dale Jackson (left) and Forest O'Brine prepare to regain the endurance record. Theirs had held until July 4, 1930, when John and Kenneth Hunter, brothers from Sparta, Ill., landed after having stayed aloft for 553 hours over Chicago. Jackson and O'Brine flew from Lambert in a new plane, the Greater St. Louis, on July 21, 1930, and kept it in the air for 647 hours, 26 minutes -- almost 27 days. But the National Aeronautic Association said Jackson and O'Brine didn't complete their logs and other formal paperwork, and never recognized the achievement. (Post-Dispatch)
