ordered to Norwich. England, to take
machines from there to Paris. We
started at 9 o'clock Monday morning
and made one stop In England, then
flew across the channel and started
for Paris. It was very cloudy and
we became separated. I succeeded In
flying as far as Havre, France, or
rather thirty miles below Havre, when
a cylinder blew off and I had to land
In the first field, which was fortun
ately close at hand."
George says that he could find no
one who could understand English
and it was a long time before he
succeeded In getting word to Paris
of his difficulty. Finally the message

One chap's engine went bad two miles

to land In the water, but was picked
up by a passing boat."
