Two young Syracuse men flew a plane named Miss Dairylea during a four-and-a-half day endurance flight over Central New York during the 1938 New York State Fair. Because the Dairymen’s League helped sponsor the flight, the plane, a Piper J3 Cub, had a decal of Little Miss Dairylea and milk bottles on its wheel “pants”. The two pilots ate and drank Dairylea products which they collected along with gasoline in spectacular ground to air swoops. Miss Dairylea remained aloft for 106 hours 6 minutes. The previous record for a single engine was 63 hours and 54 minutes. The iconic “Miss Dairylea” was introduced in the 1920s to help promote Dairylea products. The cute miss adorned promotional materials for this new brand until she was honorably retired 50 years later.
