ANTARCTICA BY SEA, LAND AND AIR 0 B.A.E. AERIAL CONQUEROR OF THE ENDS OF EARTH Admiral Richard E. Byrd, accompanied by the late Floyd Bennett, flew to the North Pole from Spitsbergen in 1926. On November 29, 1929, with three companions he succeeded in flying over the earth's most southerly point. The explorer is dressed in the caribou skin suit which he wore on his South Polar flight. Igloo, a pet terrier, accompanied him on both expeditions and has thus spent much of his life in the regions of ice and snow.
