This is one of the strangest, almost forgotten stories of the 20th century. Admiral Richard Byrd was one of the great explorers of the last century, and like his Arctic Expedition, he too is largely forgotten. Byrd came of age in the era of the aeroplane when flight was one of the most amazing things of the times. It was a time when the trans-Atlantic flight of Charles Lindbergh was as exciting as going to the Moon was in the ‘60s.
