World Flight Arrives in Kagoshima, Japan

Daily Report

by Lt. L. P. Arnold "Chicago" Mechanic 

At 12:50 p.m., this afternoon, the flight departed for kagoshima, flying into a 40 miles an hour head wind. The route chosen was past Muroto Point, Ashizuri Point to Ariake Bay, across the peninsula into Kagoshima. During the flight, the planes passed through two complete storm centers of considerable intensity. While over Boungo Channel, the "Boston" began overheating caused by a loss of water through its overflow and landed in a well protected harbor on the coast of Kyushu Island. The pilot filled his radiator with salt water while the other two planes circled. The flight continued on to Kagoshima, landing at 7:01, where they were met by the US Repair Ship, the Black Hawk, and Lieut. Clifford C. Nutt, the Advance Officer in the Japanese territory. Excellent arrangements have been prepared. Plans for leaving tomorrow given up due to the necessity of a day being required for the naval ships to get in position for the 550 mile water flight across the Yellow Sea to Shanghai.

Daily Report

by Lt. E. H. Nelson “New Orleans" Pilot

General inspection, routine work and serving. Propeller tipping noted to be in poor condition due to flying through rain and taxiing in rough water. New propeller will need to be installed on Plane No. 4 [New Orleans]. The propellers received in the supplies at this station were badly damaged, due to trailing edges being cracked by the bracing pieces inside the boxes. The cracks were about a foot from the end. The one installed on Plane No. 4 will need to be repaired on board the U.S. Supply Ship Black Hawk before it can be used.
