FLIGHT MADE BY JANNUS
IN REXFORD SMITH PLANE
Keeps Up With Express Train
Passing Field at Col
lege Park.
An endurance flight of the Rexford
Smith biplane was made at College Park
yesterday, after being repaired from the
landing accident last week.
The machine was equipped with a tank
calculated to supply the engine for twenty
minutes. About five minutes were spent
In warming up the engine and in a short
flight
Then the machine was sent up for a
longer flight and remained aloft for
twelve minutes. A descent was then made
for fear of using up all the fuel. A longer
flight is to be tried today.
Owing to the fact that a measured
course was not followed, it was possible
only to estimate the speed. The Balti
more and Ohio railroad track runs by
the field and one of the expresse trains
from Baltimore passed during the flight.
The biplane held the express even on a
stretch of about three-quarters of a miie
a.ong the edge of the field, so that its
speed appeared to be about s^xty miles an
hour on tne straight.
The weather was cold and as the
aviator. Antony Jannus, did not wear
goggles, the wind gave him some trouble
with his eyes. If a flight is made today
he will wear goggles as a protection.
