World Flight Makes Next to Last Flight
by Lt. L. P. Arnold, "Chicago", Mechanic
We were up early this morning preparing for the hop to Eugene, Oregon. We left at 9:00 a.m. on an exceptional fine day - considering it's supposed to be the rainy season. The mountains of Northern California are beautiful this time of year - we saw 6 snow covered peaks at one time. We flew the same basic route we flew at the beginning of the flight over Shasta. We landed at Eugene and had a banquet as usual followed by a speech given by the Governor.

The flight remained one day in San Francisco in order to allow time for the motor change in the "Boston II." At 8:53 this morning, the flight took off for Eugene, flying practically the same route as that used at the start of the World Flight, landing on the same field at 2:13 p.m. A large reception had been planned, people journeying from all over the state to be present at the Flight's arrival, among those present being the Governor of Oregon.
