Kero stove with a silent burner. Any picture looking down? What was its historical significance?

I tried getting a photo looking down upon it, but was not successful. There is a lot of engraving on the stove - I suspect, but cannot be sure, that it is more than instructions. I suspect that there is historical significance, but don't know what it is. Perhaps boiling water to eat a Campmore freeze dried meal on the moon ;-)

I'm betting it has to do with Arctic exploration. They used Primus and similar stoves, usually in conjunction with a Nansen cooker. The race to be the first to over-fly, then land an aircraft on the North Pole was a pretty big deal back in the early 20th century.

The first overflight--and transit of the Arctic--was by Admunsen in an Italian-made and piloted dirigible. I think Byrd is credited with the first landing of an airplane on the pole. That might be his stove!
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

What, he cooked on a Primus while in the air over the Atlantic? That, my friends, is hard core!

OK, read the article. That makes more sense. And I'm glad to see the Smith finally got the pre-heat cup right-side-up!

If he was in a modern jet he could use the fuel from the plane. But in those days gasoline would have caused a problem in a kerosene stove.....probably never used.

I worked on this exhibit.  The Tingmissartoq was a pretty cool plane the way they had it equipped.  I'm really surprised at how much stuff they had jammed into the pontoons.  I spent a few weeks waxing the anchor and cleaning the snow shoes.  

At some point between the American Museum of Natural History, USAF Museum in Dayton and NASM, the intact survival rations became infested with beetle larvae.  As the subsequent generations of beetle larvae ate and died in the small tin containers, they started to stink to high heaven.  That was one of the least fun things about that project.  

I have no factual basis for thinking this but I assume Lindbergh's wife, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, went on these trips with him to distract her from the kidnapping and death of Charles Jr.

Here's just a little more information about the plane:
