The Lufthansa Focke-Wulf Fw.200 Condor, christened 'Brandenburg', was a remarkable plane in a number of ways - too bad it had to sport a swastika on her tail. On August 11, 1938 she flew non-stop from Berlin to N.Y.C. and back again in 45 hours:

"The flight to New York, first ever made from Berlin, was accomplished in 24 hours 56 minutes 12 seconds, a speed record. The return hop shattered the late Wiley Post's New York mark of 25 hours by a wide margin: the Brandenburg landed at Templehof Airfield 19 hours 54 minutes after leaving Floyd Bennett Field."
