A Matter of Routine .The most sensational thing about the navy'.- mass flight to Hawaii seems to be the fact that there was nothing 'sensational about il.

And the flight lived Up to this advance billing. The six plan's took oil' as they planned to, Hew for ^,-101) miles in formation, and came dow:i precisely when and where (buy said they would, without any fuss and without any excitement. This, when you stop to think about it, is a splendid achievement. That long- hop from California to Hawaii is intrinsically a difficult and dangerous job. The navy made it look easy- just part of the regular job. H is a great tribute to I he advance of aviation and to the efficiency of the navy's flying service.
