Welcome to the official site of the Seattle World Cruiser Project. Celebrating the first circumnavigation of the globe by air.
WORLD FLIGHT UPDATE: RESCHEDULED TO 2020
Due to numerous factors, we are postponing our celebration flight until next year. This year will continue to be action packed with ongoing flight preparations, planning and fine tuning the Seattle II, so stay tuned for more details.
Thank you to everyone for their continued support and patience. It is all greatly appreciated.
In observance of the 95th anniversary of the Douglas World Cruisers, we are providing daily year to date information of the 1924 world flight as it progressed around the globe. The information and content provided here is based on, and courtesy of the National Museum of the United States Air Force’s 1999 celebration of the 75th anniversary of the World Flight.

A big thank you to our friends at the Museum of Flight for featuring us in their recent blog post. If you’ve not been to the museum lately be sure to get down there to see their wonderful Apollo exhibit Destination Moon. It features rare Smithsonian artifacts from Apollo 11 including the Apollo 11 command module, Columbia that took the astronauts safely to the Moon and back.
We’ve just added a Fundraising Gift Store to the site. There are some very unique items available that we’re sure you’ll enjoy. All proceeds help fund the project. They’re are a great way for you to show your support and for us to thank you for your help. Some of our gifts like our “Stowaway Selfie” will no longer be available after April 17th so get order soon to not miss out on this very one-of-a-kind opportunity!
Hello to all of you that have been following us on Instagram. With less than a month to go till takeoff we’d appreciate everyone’s help spreading the word about the project. A big thank you to those of you sharing photos you’ve been taking of our test flights on Lake Washington. If you see us anywhere in the world as we make our way around the globe we’d appreciate you sharing your photos on Instagram. We’d be grateful if you used the hashtag #SeattleWorldCruiser www.instagram.com/seattleworldcruiserproject
