From her steam yacht Liberty, Lucy Houston, a former chorus line dancer of the thirties, despatched five aeroplanes with crews to India to be the first over Everest. They were instructed to film the highest peaks and to look for signs of the missing climbers Irvine and Mallory. Her pilots only succeeded in the first and second objective. The filmed documentary of their epic story won an Oscar.
The story of man's first flight over the highest point of our planet in 1933
And the plan to follow in the slipstream of Lucy's pilots persists, because so many of you love the story!
