Fort( Feet ft Death.
Corning, N. Y., Oct 7. -M. Hondo,
a young Japanese, was thrown 40
feet to his death from a plunging
aeroplane, held fast by tho fans of a
windmill, at Savona, near here. The
aviator had made a desperate effort
to avoid a, collision with the mill, but
had been caught almost when his ef
forts seemed crowned with success,
and he ti-as thrown out before he had
time to stop his motor .and prevent
the plunging' of the machine which,
checked, might have saved his life.
Unfamiliar with the nature of the
territory in which he was flying,
Hondo foolishly attempted to round
the angle of a barn at close quarters,
and as he did so he found himself on
the windmill. Hondo fell head down
ward 40 feet, striking on his head
and fracturing his skull. He lived
but threo minutes after the few farm
er spectators who had been watching
his maneuvers reached him.
Hondo learned to fly at the Curtis
school In Santa Barbara, Cal.
