-Junior Editors Qui* on— FLIGHT QUESTION: Who was first to fly over the Pacific Ocean? ANSWER: One gray, cloudy day in the year 1912, Glenn L. Martin, one of the first pioneers of aviation, took off in his homemade plane from Newport Bay, near Los Angeles. He headed for Catalina Island, 38 miles away. This flight, although short, was directly over the water and can be called the first recorded flight over part of the Pacific. But Martin, did not fly across the Pacific Ocean. Charles E. Kingsford-Smith and Charles T. P. Ulm, both Australians, were the first to accomplish this historic feat. Their ship was a Fokker monoplane, powered with three engines and named the "Southern Cross." The start was from Oakland, Calif., May 31, 1928. Kingsford-Smith and Ulm had prepared for this flight with the greatest of care. Everything worked perfectly. After 27 hours and 25 minutes, the plane landed in Honolulu. Another hop of 3144 miles took the "Southern Cross" to the Fiji Islands, and then after another 1780 miles the ship settled down at Brisbane, Australia. It was June 9; they had flown 7,400 miles and blazed a trail which led to regular mail and passenger service across the vast Pacific. ' FOR YOU TO DO: Kingsford-Smith said he felt like Columbus as he saw the coast of Australia rise above the sea. Learn more about historic air flights, so you can answer these questions. Who was Amelia Earhart? Why did America go wild over Charles Lindberg? (For this question, Rick Hilsabeck of Portsmouth, N. H. wins $10. Send your question on a postcard to Violet Moore Higgins, AP Newsfeatures, in care of the newspaper. Mrs. Higgins will select the winner if duplicate questions are received.)
