Near this site on July 14, 1937, three Russian aviators completed a transpolar flight from Moscow in 62 hrs, 17 min establishing a new world's nonstop distance record of 6,305 miles. The huge single-engine aircraft, an ANT-25 military reconnaissance monoplane, was shipped back to Russia and placed in a museum. Aircraft commander Mikhail Gromov, co-pilot Andre Ymashev, and navigator Sergei Danilin became generals in World War II.
