H., April IS. — The record-breaking flight of a Pan-American Airways i clipper plane from California to! Hawaii drewj attention today to the remarkable strides in transoceanic flying'since two army pilots In a land plane made the first crossing seven years before. ; 1 "Dine in San Francisco, breakfast the next morning in Honolulu," became a reality, with the completion of the first exploratory flight of a service which'soon will link not only Honolulu'and the mainland but the entire Orient with the western coast of the United States. Capt. Edward A. Musick and his five companions in their four- motored Sikorsky bridged the 2,400 miles in IS hours, 31 minutes, land did it without ; making any effort to travel the shortest path in the quickest tinie. Instead they deliberately reduced the speed of their plane'to arrive after dawn and the time originally announced. It was possible they •could have cut their time at least three or four hours had they tried. Their speed contrasted with the 25 hours, 50 minutes it took Lts. Alfred Hegenberger and Lester Maitland to make the first suc- aessful east-to-west flight in 1927. The army men had a land plane if the Fokker type. In the intervening years only one other flight succeeded in cutting their time until yesterday's trail-blazing effort. The previous best time wp.s made by six U. S. navy planes in 1934J when they crossed on the longest over-water mass tion flight ever made in 24 hours, 18 minutes. As in the navy flight, .the Pan- Ymefican clipper plane's journey was a "routine" venture, made solely for the purpose of "grooving" the route planes will follow !n regular service. Musick and his companions I stepped from their ship 1 as refreshed and jaunty as If they had iust left California two hours before instead of almost 19. They slept, however, through the day ind after brief conferences''again retired to their hotel. After their 17-ton plane has >een reconditioned they will make exploratory flights around the Ha- vaiian Islands, then return to California.
