Junior Flying Record Broken. Los Angeles, California; August 12, 1930 Associated Press) A slight, 18-year-old Jersey City youth, Eddie Schneider, today held the junior record for the fastest westward crossing of the United States. Landing at the municipal airport at dusk yesterday, the young flier completed his transcontinental crossing in a total flying time of 29 hours, 41 minutes, just 4 hours 22 minutes less than required by the former record holder, the late Frank Goldsborough of New York.
