The 'Chicago' was one of two U.S. Army Air Service airplanes to complete the first round-the-world flight in 1924. Starting from Seattle, the westwards flight took 175 days to accomplish. 'Chicago' was flown by Lt. Lowell Smith and Lt. Leslie Arnold. The 'New Orleans' was the other World Cruiser to finish the historic flight, as 'Seattle' and 'Boston' were damaged en route.
