American Aviator Remains Aloft
Nearly Two Hours-Soars in a
Lemans, France, Dec. 18.-Wilbur
Wright, the American aeroplanist, es
tablished a new world's record for
heavier-than-air machines today,
while trying for the Michelin cup, re
maining in the air 1 hour, 53 minutes
and 59 seconds. The best previous
record is one hour, 31 minutes and 51
seconds, which Mr. Wright made Oc
The aeronaut attained an average
height of 24 feet today and the dis
tance was officially measured at 61 1-2
miles, which does not include the wide
sweeps and turns during the flight.
He descended only because the oil
feeder got out of order.
Mr. Wright closed a triumphant
day by achieving another record, fly
ing to a height of 360 feet in a strong
wind and winning the Sarthe AeroI
club's prize for height. At first it
was thought that the violence of the
breeze wov". compel Mr. Wright to
postpone his efforts but undaunted
his machine and circled around and
around the field. When soaring at
90 feet a sudden gust of wind caught
the areoplane sidewsie, causing it to
plunge violently backwards. The
spectators were terrified but Mr.
Wright remained unperturbed and
soon righted his craft.
At the end of 10 minutes the wind
had moderated and the -aeroplane
soared upward and passed high. over a
line of captive balloons marking a dis
tance of 300 feet. Then it deseeiael
and after again circling the f'eld was
brought to earth, landing in front of
the.shed in which it is housed.
!Me Area club tonight gave a ban
quet to Mr. Wright in consideration
of his victory of today.
