We hear that Douglas and Peter Hull had some exciting adventures when they flew from BIackbushe to Rouen and back, to visit the Clere Museum, in an ancient Piper Cub with 65 h.p. Continental engine, cruising at 65 m.p.h. They had to cope with fog, with no radio and a minimum of instruments, not even a turn-and-bank indicator and, after landing at Berck, had to do their own repairs to a broken undercarriage bungee.
On a more professional note, we are pleased to hear that Sheila Scott has set two new Trans-Atlantic records for single-engined aeroplanes, by crossing in 20 hrs. 5 mins. 47 secs. in a Piper Comanche, a speed of 277.221 k.p.h.
