World Flight Hops to Chicago, Illinois

Daily Report

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

*There was a large crowd at McCook Field this morning waiting to see us off to Chicago. When we arrived in Chicago, an even larger crowd was there to greet us. After landing, we had lunch at the Country Club before returning to the field with a motorcycle escort to prepare the planes for the next hop.

In the evening, we attended a banquet at the Drake and then went to the theater where we met some old friends from the Air Service.

Daily Report

by Lt. L. H. Smith, Commanding

The McCook Field personnel worked day and night on our planes making it possible for the flight to continue to Chicago at 11:15 this morning, or about 40 hours after the arrival of the flight in Dayton. The course was taken direct to Chicago, landing at the Air Mail Field at 2:15. A very large crowd was on the field and Chicago had made elaborate preparations to celebrate the arrival of the flight.

Lieuts. Wright and Moffat were proving to be indispensable to the flight in arranging for guards, transportation, lodging, receptions, etc.
