Amid the roar of jets, a single-engine Cessna quietly touched down Saturday at Burbank Airport, commemorating the first transcontinental flight by black pilots 65 years ago. The Cessna was piloted by two men from Tucson--a veteran and a student--who are among 76 black pilots nationwide participating in a re-creation of the historic flight in which two black men undertook the historic 11-day mission. The 4,600-mile commemorative journey began last Wednesday at Bader Field in Atlantic City, N.J.
