The clip Trippe gets the word from The Aviator (2004)
Smashing all records, Howard Hughes outdoes Jules Verne's wildest dreams.
Around the world from New York to New York in four days.
Even beating Wiley Post's mark by over three days.
New aviation history is written when his Lockheed monoplane...
... returns swiftly and safely. A daring aviator.
A true pioneer of the world's airways.
From New York to Paris, he cuts Lindbergh's time in half. Then on to Moscow.
Thirty-five hours out of New York, he roars across Siberia's trackless wastes.
Sixty hours out of New York, he heads for Alaska, most hazardous hop of all.
Continuing the terrific pace, he comes home...
... bringing new laurels to American aviation.
Howard Hughes and his crew may find more worlds to conquer...
You won't believe this. It just came over the wires. Hughes has bought control of TWA.
I thought Mr. Hughes was flying around the world.
Apparently he did it while he was flying, over the radio.
I have heard some disquieting rumors about Mr. Hughes.
I'd like to know everything there is to know about Mr. Hughes.
I'd like you to attend to that for me.
