RWD-5 atlantic flight.

Record atlantic flight by Stanisław Skarżyński on RWD-5

RWD-5 (SP-LOT) is modern replica of RWD-5bis (SP-AJU). In 1933 Stanislaw Skarzynski flew solo flight across the Atlantic from Senegal to Brasil. He crossed 3,582 km, establishing a distance World Record in a FAI tourist plane 2nd class (weight below 450 kg / 1000 lb). After almost 80 years RWD-5 is still the lightest aircraft that crossed the Atlantic… (taxing Po-2 in backround).
