2.250 seconds is about one-twenty-five-thousandth as long as The First Transatlantic Flight (Alcock and Brown, 1919)
In other words, the length of The First Transatlantic Flight (Alcock and Brown, 1919) is 25,900 times that amount.
(John Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brown) (1919) (first non-stop flight)
In an effort to win a £10,000 prize from London's The Daily Mail, John Alcock and Arthur Brown completed a flight from St. John's, Newfoundland to Connemara, Ireland in 58,300 seconds in June, 1919. In spite of their fame as aviators, Brown would never fly again after this trip and Alcock would lose his life during a flight to France less than 15,800,000 seconds later.
