In preparation for the long jump more gasoline was put aboard both planes this morning. The ships today were moving to positions along the new route and by morning al should be in readiness -- that is all but the weather & we can hope for that.
About noon Locatelli [Italian World Flight aviator] arrived in a keen looking flying boat -- monoplane type with twin motors [Dornier-Wahl]
Most of the day was spent pouring over maps, weather reports, and laying plans -- and all turned in for a few hours sleep preparatory to arising at one a.m.

The Italian aviator Locatelli arrived today in a Dornier Wahl seaplane. They made no advance arrangements for their flight across the Atlantic but were relying supplies left over by the Americans. According to an agreement between officials in Washington, D.C. and in Italy, the Italian plane was to remain one flight behind the American planes. However, it was realized that it would be a great help for Locatelli if he were allowed to accompany us. Authority for this was requested today from the Chief of Air Service [Gen. Patrick].
