E. R. ARMSTRONG
THE OUTSTANDING experiences of trans-oceanic fliers over the North Atlantic route is the extreme flight hazard brought about because of weather conditions.

E.G.P. sends in a clipping from a metropolitan paper, showing a picture of Lieut. “A1” Williams under the title “Five Miles a Second”. He inquires if this might not be an exaggeration, as five miles a second is 18,000 m.p.h. We happened to be present when this particular speed test was made and it is our opinion that the reporter merely misplaced his decimal a couple of places.

Orders issued at Washington recently appear to indicate that the War Department has decided to restore Rockwell Field to its pre-war status as a great military aviation post. Sixty-two modern pursuit planes have been assigned to this field as the nucleus of the flying equipment for the 95th Pursuit Squadron, one of three units of the Seventh Pursuit group, which is to be permanently based at the local airport, effective June 1, 1928.

While the Dunn Field site for Springfield’s municipal airport is being strenuously opposed by the residents of the town of Longmeadow in which it is located, and while it apparently continues as the site most favored by the airport committee of the city council, the residents of East Longmeadow are definitely out to boost the Drinkwater tract in this town of about 162 acres as the best site.

On a particularly clear day recently, John Paul Riddle, general manager of the Embry-Riddle Company, commercial operators at Lunken Airport, saw towns at a distance of 50 and 60 miles from Cincinnati from a height of 12,000 ft. Over Cincinnati at that height, he saw Middletown and Hamilton, Ohio, Cynthiana, Ky., the Ohio River near Maysville, the river opposite La Grange and a hundred smaller towns dotting the enormous saucer below him.
