Canada's Lindbergh - by Colin Bowley

The first Canadian to fly the Atlantic was James Erroll Boyd of Toronto.

He took off from Harbour Grace, Newfoundland in a Bellanca WB-2 on the 9 October 1930 bound for England. 24 hours 10 minutes later fuel problems forced him to first land on a beach at Tresco in the Scilly Isles. The next day he flew on to his intended destination, Croydon Airport, south of London.
