The two-man flight from France to

never been in England and was obliged
to rely entirely on the compass while
crossing the channel in the teeth of

Tbe channel flight was an incident ia
the aerial voyage from Paris to Lon

Hubert Latham and reached Amiens is
two hours. Latham’s aeroplane was
wrecked, and Moissant, leaving Amiens
at an early hour, headed for Calais.
His mechanician, Albert Fileux, who
had accompanied him across the coun

Thousands who had gathered to

Moissant cared nothing for the warn

that there was no torpedo-boat to fol

the trip in 37 minute*. When he de
scended his eyes were bloodshot and
greatly inflamed as a result of th«
heavy rain storm into which he drove
on approaching tbe Englsh coast.
The high wind beat the rain into the
faces of the men like hail, and almost
blinded them. An average height of
between 300 and 400 feet was main
tained over the water. The cold wa*
intense, and both Moissant and his
mechanician were benumbed. When be
revived sufficiently he laughed and said
to an interviewer:
“This is my first visit to England.
