In 1930, Albert, John, Walter and Kenneth Hunter set the World Endurance Flight Record of 553 hours, 41 minutes and 30 seconds over Chicago. They visited Los Angeles with their monoplane, City of Chicago, a large yellow and blue Stinson-Detroiter and the refueling ship, Big Ben. Their record was later broken by the Key Brothers.
