Hnllmvay, a native son of Kern county has found fame in aerial conquest despite the saying that the day of pioneering is over. Captain Holloway is a son of the late O. W. Holloway and Mrs. Holloway, who. like their son, were also pioneers, only their adventurous spirits led them across the plains into the new west of their day. Taking up where his parents left off when there wns no more of the west to pioneer. Captain Holloway took to the air during the first World War and became an ace flier and was made first lieutenant and flight commander in the Hundred Forty- first Aero Squadron. Now his name goes down with the greatest of aviation as he blazes a new airway across the north Atlantic, which saves time and fuel and enables planes to carry larger pay loads on that important route at a time when such a discovery is of tremendous importance to the war effort as well as to the expanding prospects of aerial transportation in the postwar world. "The north Atlantic has long been a bugaboo to airmen, and with the coming of war this weather menace seriously hindered the delivery of supplies and planes to the European war front. For several months of the year, the much longer route across the south Atlantic was used, at least for westbound flights," American Aviation magazine said recently in a story which gave Captain Holloway credit for perfecting the new airway. Douglas C-54A t'seil T. W. A. began in 134;! to gather data for the Air Transport Command on north Atlantic weather and to see if it would be feasible to fly both directions over this route during the winter months. A Douglas C-54A was used, and from the many crossings made a new methed of over- ocean flying was developed which in many ways will revolutionize postwar trans-Atlantic air transportation, the magazine said. Top Flight Captain of T. W. A., with 5,000,000 miles in the air to his credit, Captain Holloway was chosen, along with Captain Howard Hall, to pioneer the new air-road on the theory that, with sufficient pioneering, skill and engineering, it might be possible to obtain a tailwind in whatever course planes might travel in the north Atlantic. This system of flying on that route has been termed "pressure pattern" aviation by the pioneering airmen. Sister Explains Exploits Mrs. Luella Garnsey, assistant county purchasing agent and sister of the air ace, in explaining the exploits of her brother said, "This method of flying makes the winds do part of the work rather than bucking them. The wind in high pressure areas blows in a clockwise direction out of the middle of the area, while wind in a low pressure area blows counter-clockwise into the middle. Thus if a pilot should fly the shortest distance from Newfoundland to Scotland, he would have adverse winds part of the way. "However, after passing through the high pressure area where there is a tailwind, the route would be changed north or south so as to have the benefit of a tailwind for the rest of the distance," Mrs. Garnsey added. —Phot* by Cil Williams MARRIED HERE—Miss Phyllis Maddox, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Maddox, 1600 Ray street, recently became the bride of Hoi- lis D. Nunnelly, seaman first class of the United States Navy. Both young people received their education in the local schools. TRAILBLAZER—T. W. A. Top Flight Captain H. H. Holloway, a native son of Kern county, who has 5,000.000 air miles to his credit, has attained fame in aviation for blazing a new, time-saving trail across the north Atlantic and perfecting system of "pressure pattern flying. Captain Holloway, who is now in Washington serving the war effort in a supervisory capacity, has tested the system of pressure pattern flying in the north Atlantic, racing with planes taking the direct course, and it has been found that the longer route which takes advantage j of the tailwinds neerthelests requires less time and fuel and enables a plane to carry a heavier pay load. "This," Captain Holloway says, "will bo of great advantage when economics instead of war necessity becomes the order of the day after the war is over." Local relatives of the famous flier in addition to Mrs. Garnsey are Mrs. E. E. Timmons, llilil Richland Place, and Ben Holloway, deputy county assessor. Mrs. Garnsey said today, "I am very proud of my brother, for I feel that he not only helped to win the first World War, but has made a wry worthwhile contribution toward winning the present one. He has also blazed a new trail across the north Atlantic sky which will be of great value to future generations." Itoiursfitlb California!!
