Arkansas Natural Gas Corp, A Cities Service Unit daring and- adventure that so captured the imagination of people in the early days of .motoring is gradually losing its romantic glamour even in aviation. ° For when one of the leading pilots of the country expresses a yearning for the return of those perilous times he used to "enjoy" in the air, it's a sign that this newest mode of travel soon will be as normal as motoring is today. That flyer is Harry Huking, mustached and partially-bald ace pilot on the Reno to San Francisco route of the United' Air Lines, and president of the National Air Pilots' "Association. Huking has flown so much that it's just a daily grind to'him. His hours in the air total more than 6000, yet his most spectacular accomplishment is his more than, 1200 night flgihts over one of the most perilous air routes'in the United States. No-More Excitement Daylight flying is too tame and uneventful. He bemoans the fact that the lighted airways have taken much of the perilous excitement out of night flying. And when radio comes along to make his flying doubly safe, he- merely grins and looks for adventure elsewhere.' • »"With a chain of revolving beacons every 10 miles, blinker lights every three miles in the mountains and emergency landing fields every 20 miles, most of the- romance has gone out of flying even over the mountains \ at night," he sighs. ' i For 11 years Huking has flown the ' mail and for the last nine years he has hurdled the Rockies between Reno and San Francisco. "Back in 1920 there were no radio eyes and ears to tell us what we were running into," he recalls, "and it was that condition that led to my most thrilling experience and narrowest escape. "Soon after I left Reno I ran into a bad storm. Vainly I tried to get under, over or .around it. Each attempt failed. There were no emergency landing fields and there was nothing for m to do but grit my teeth and try to fly through the snow and sleet-laden gale. ( Threc-Mile Drop! "I tilted up the nose of my ship and let her climb. Somewhere up there, I thought, there must be calm weather. At 17,000 feet the wind was less furious and I began to exult in the belief that I had actually won through. "At that instant the engine of my plane began missing. I could not hold altitude. I dropped swiftly into the storm clouds to a height of about 2600 feet, "I knew that no ship could live at that height in the midst of the crags hidden by darkness. A crash was inevitable. It came. I woke up five days later in a hospital. The plane had struck a tree. "That accident occurred 11 years ago and since then I have spent more than 6000 hours flying back and forth across the mountains without damaging plane or hurting myself or any passenger. This is partly due to the ,science of weather reporting, and the radio which brings us weather con- of storms." ' While Passengers Sleep The night flight over the Rockies which pilots call the "hump," may be inspiring to the passengers, but it's just routine to Huking. "While the s passengers doze," h'e says, "I listen to weather advice, and count the minutes until I'm due on the air to report my position. This is dqne three times an hour in fair weather and every 10 minutes in stormy weather. I merely throw a switch and speak into a microphone. "With a tiny fountain pen flashlight I compare two wrist watches to make sure I'll call in on the dot, for I have been taken to task for reporting 30 seconds too learly. I watch the engines to keep them synchronized, and check carefully the oil .pressures.,, I must watch my schedule, .beacon lights and the terrain to Be sure we are running on time and on the Igihted route. . ,,.. „. "Then, out of the blackness ahead, the lights of the city appear. 'We glide down to a landing, and we're safely over the 'hump' again.
