World Flight flies to Haiphong
The World Flight will stay in Haiphong overnight and leave for Tourane in the morning if the weather is good.
by Lt. L. H. Smith, Commanding
This morning, the flight left Hongkong at 11:15 a.m., following the coast to the northern edge of Luichow Peninsula where it crossed over land for 30 miles and again picked up the coast staying close to the mainland until it reached Haiphong. The weather was excellent during the entire flight, the second time since leaving Seattle; the Yellow Sea crossing being the first. At Haiphong, a landing was made in the river at 6:41 p.m., where excellent arrangements had been made by the Vacuum [Standard] Oil Company and a United States Destroyer. This was the first landing in French Territory and the flight was received at a large reception given by the French Governor of that district.
