Fliers Arrive in Omaha

Daily Report

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

*We arose early this morning to prepare for the flight to Omaha; however, the air mail field was blanketed in fog. Later in the morning the fog cleared and we left at 11:00 for Ft. Crook, Nebraska. We landed at 3:48 and immediately prepared the planes for the next hop.

In the evening we attended a dinner and reception hosted by Mr. Gould Dietz. The city hosts an yearly "Queen of Omaha" pageant and the Queen and five Ladies in Waiting were our dinner companions.

Daily Report

by Lt. L. H. Smith, Commanding

Yesterday the fog in Chicago and along the route was so bad that the flight was postponed until today, when at 11 o'clock, it took off and flew direct to Omaha, landing at Fort Crook at 3:48. The usual reception was planned, except on a smaller scale than at previous stops in the United States
