Washington, Oct. 2". - Tentative
1)lans for an attempted flight of army
airplanes around the world 'have ibeen
under consideration for some months
by air service officials, it was learned
today, but the project has not as yet
passed the preliminary survey stage.
Valuable data on available routes in
both directions have been obtained,
however. .and ultimately it is hoped,
to send a considerable aerial squadron
on the voyage. The project will not
be ild ibefore Secretary Weeks for
approval, it was said, until it takes
much more definite form.
Two of the routes considered are
that fron the Atlantic coast via Ice
land qand Ireland and that from the
Pacific via Alaska, 'the Ajeutlan is
lands, 'Siberia. and home via Ireland
and Iceland. Air service ollicials said
the route offering the most favorable
conditions as to iyevaillng winds
would be selected should the flight be
ordered, and it would then become
necessary to obtain permission of each
sofqthe countries to be traversed'before
the squadron could start.
The question of air navigation by
pilots of one country over the terri
tory of another nation has been con
sidered by the council of the league of
nations in order to establish uniform
ity of 'practice. So far as the UnitedI
States and Caanda are concerned, a re
cent agreement fixed rec iprocal rights
for the pilots of the tlo nations.
Army fliers conceived the world cir
-ling flight plan In line with the rea
;on which prompted Preideint Roose
velt to send the fleet ayound the world
in- 190$, it 'vas said. It would have
value both as -a step in providing
herial defeirse through training and in
giving the world a better understand
ing of American lpost-war dovCec)
ments. Fliers of other nations 'liave
undertaken. ill) to this tie Without
success, world circling ilghts but only
with a single plane, while the Ameri
can air service project would call for
a fleet of aircraft and'careful prepara
tions involving considerable expendi
ture. Posdibly a special act of coni
gress to authorize a flight and make
necessary ureparations would be
necessary, should the secretary all
