Douglas Corrigan(January 22, 1907 – December 9, 1995) was anAmericanaviatorborn inGalveston,Texas. He was nicknamed"Wrong Way"in 1938. After a transcontinental flight fromLong Beach, California, toNew York City, he flew from "Floyd Bennett Field"inBrooklyn, New York, toIreland, though his flight plan was filed to return to Long Beach. He claimed his unauthorized flight was due to anavigationalerror, caused by heavy cloud cover that obscured landmarks & low-light conditions, causing him to misread hiscompass. However, he was a was one of the builders ofCharles Lindbergh's "Spirit of St. Louis") & had made several modifications to his own plane, preparing it for histransatlantic flight. He had been denied permission to make a nonstop flight from New York to Ireland, & his "navigational error" was seen as deliberate. Nevertheless, he never publicly admitted to having flown to Ireland intentionally.
