Tho former altitude record of 19,300
feet, hold by Olaf ("Swcdo") Moycr
hoffor, made In San Diego In 1917 with
an old typo Curtlss plane equipped
with an 80 H. P. motor, has boon shat
tered. An altltudo of 21,800 feot was
made by Walter T. Varnoy flying a
Lincoln-Standard airplano equipped
with a 238-horsopower Hispano-Sulza
motor. This now Pacific Coast alti
tude record was mado over tho City of
Varnoy "took off" at 10.01 o'clock
attaining an altltudo of 10,000 feet on
his- first circle of tho field. The furth
er series of circles took him out of
sight of the spectators on tho ground.
His attempted altitude of 25,000 feet
failed on account of tho lntenso cold
and the rarity of tho air. At 14,000
feet he began to feel the cold and tho
thermometer on tho "ship" registered
six degrees below zero at the maxi
mum height attained on this flight.
Varney's face and even his hands al
though encased in fur gloves were
blue with cold upon landing.
While Varnoy reported he had dif
ficulty breathing at this great altitude
he had no engino difficulty whatever.
VaVney used Red Crown gasoline and
Zcrolene lubricating oil. Under the
normal conditions of the first stages
of his flight ho climbed at the rate of
1,000 feet a minute, but at an altitude
of 18,000 feet the air was so "thin"
that at times the piano dropped 50 to
75 feet before catching hold and tho
speed was cut to 600 feet a minute.
Varnoy did not attempt to break tho
record set by Major Schroedor who,
flying a Le Pere, attained a height of
39,000 feot. Major Schroedor on this
great climbo was equipped with oxy
gen tanks and apparatus and electric
heated clothes. Varnoy plans other
flights over San Francisco and expocts
to establish a now altltudo record for
the Pacific Coast.
Moycrhofter, Chief Test Pilot for the
Varnoy forces, also mado a test flight
and attained a height of 19,600 feet
which is 300 feet better than the rec
ord ho established three years ago.
