Alcock and Brown

The first non-stop transatlantic flight by Alcock and Brown started in New Foundland and ended in a remote bog at Errislannan only 10 minutes away from our hotel. Two memorials commemorating the flight were constructed near the landing spot, one is an isolated cairn on the site of Marconi’s first transatlantic radio station from where Alcock and Brown transmitted their success to London. In addition there’s asculpture of a plane’s tail fin on Errislannan Hill which was erected to mark the 40th anniversary of the landing
