In my face While the machine cut the
air, the wind whipped my face and my
coat waa carried backward by the wind
as on the deck of an ocean steemer.
. Navigation ef the air may best' be
compared to the navigation of a river
under steam. - It does not resemble any
kind of navigation under sail, ao whn
a navigator of the air talks about steer
ing his ship by "tacking" he 1 using a
simile which means nothing.
If the wind blows at all. It blow In a
certain direction. But between sailing
an airship and sailing In tha current of
a river the analogy Is perfect.
When there Is no wind at all naviga
tion In tha air Is Ilka navigation In the
smooth waters of a lake. It Is import
ant to understand this. If my motor
and my propeller carry me through the
air at the rate of 20 mllea an hour, I am
like the captain of a steamboat whose
propeller runa 20 - miles an hour up
stream or down stream.
- Let us auppose that the current runs
10 mllea an hour. If the boat la sail
ing against th current it runs 10 mil-s
an hour In proportion to the shore, al
though it does not give greater propor
tion of apeed on the water.
Inls is one reason why It Is so dif
ficult to calculate the speed of an air
ship. For. the same reason captains of
airships prefer to sail their ships in
calro weather, and If they find a con
trary current, try to escape It by mean
of an oblique rise or fall.
The past masters of the winged order-
-the birds follow the earns course
of action when in tha air. .
- On the sea a yachtsman demands a
favorable wind because he cannot sail
without 1C On the river thi steamboat
captains hug the shore to avoid the
current. They arrange matters to go
down t.ie river with the ebbing tide
rather than-with the rising.
