HONOLri.r. June 2. ( AP)
Eager to resume their air journey
to Sydney. Australia, the four
men of the giant monoplane
Southern Cross devoted- today to
an inspection of their machine.
Their triumphant arrival yester-
1 day from Oakland. Calif., after a
flight of 2 4 00 miles heightened
courape already hijrh for the great
adventure over a total of TS00
miles to the antipodes.
If the plane and the field at
Barking Sand6. Island of Kauai,
are ready the flyers may take off
for the South Seas tomorrow or
Monday at the latest.
Charles' dm. who with Captain
Charles Kingsford-Smith. piloted
the giant plane, explained that his
determination to maintain the or
iginal schedule was an outgrowth
of "criticism in Australia for our
long delay in getting started."
"Some of our critics have even
been so unkind as to dub us the
'non-hop flyers'," continued Ulm.
"But we have paid no attention
toJfcaCfloiL.of stuff, ana have bat
ted right along.
"We have gone into this thing
exhaustively as is humanly possi
ble and we are planning 100 per
cent performance all the way to
our destination."
Vim explained that since the
flyers began planning the flight
to Australia they had investigated
all trans-oceanic air trips for the
both successful and unsuccessful.
"There was some lesson for us
to be learned from every flight
and we purposed to learn it be
fore we took off on our own ac
count," he added.
A conference was held by Ulm
and Kingsford-Smith last night
with Edward II. Bryan of the
Bishop museum here concerning
the islands lying south of Hawaii
on the course to Suva, PiJI.
Until one o'clock this morning
the flyers questioned Bryan and
examined all available photo
graphs having a bearing on this
stage of their journey, particular
ly of the Islets of Canton and
Enderbury. These coral atolls dot
the Pacific 1.822 miles south of
Honolulu and 1,316 miles north
'of SuTa-
They are directly along
the course of the Southern Croes
and offer a haven in event of
forced landings.
While no trouble is expected by
the air men, they believe in being
prepared one indication of this
is the care with which they are
making every arrangement. Should
they be forced down before reach
ing Suva, they will be able to
erect with their radio equipment
a land sending station with which
to advise the world ofheir plight
and their position.
Their plane's engines were in
excellent condition and "young"
as engines go. said the aviators.
Both Kingsford-Smith and Ulm
asserted they were not worried
about the take-off from the Bark
ing Sands runway. They said
that the i.500 foot runway there
was more than twice the distance
that the Southern Cross required
for the hop off at Oakland, where
2800 feet of the runway were used
before the plane gained enough
speed for flight.
