Hawks made two brief fuel stops in Portland that day while flying from Agua Caliente, Mexico to Vancouver, British Columbia, and back in a successful attempt to set a speed record. A cropped version of this photograph, along with image Nos. 371N1082 and 371N4991, was published on Page 1 of the Oregon Journal on Sunday, January 24, 1932. The photographs were published under the headline “Speed King Refuels Here on Flight.” This photograph had the following caption: “Attendants at the airport refueling the ship while Hawks chatted with bystanders for a few minutes.” The photographs accompanied a story headlined “Hawks Sets Record for 2-Way Dash.” According to the story, Hawks set a round-trip speed record of 13 hours, 43 minutes, 59 seconds.
