This model was special etched "Lithuanica", (English verison of Lituania), on the Blade. Lituanica was a Bellanca CH-300 Pacemaker Airplane flown from the United States across the Atlantic Ocean by Lithuanian pilots Steponas Darius and Stasys Girenas in 1933.

After sucessfully flying 4,043 miles it crashed, due to undetermined circumstances, near Soldin, Germany (now Pszczelnik, near Mysliborz, Poland), just 404 miles from its destination Kaunas, Lithuania. The wreckage has been on display in the Vytautas the Great War Museum in Kaunas.

Lituanica Ave, Bridgeport neighborhood in Chicago, IL is named after this flight. A special monument is also located in Chicago's Marquette Park in 1935 where it still stands to this day, and in Lithuania Square in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY.
