In black on its side was painted “Tramp, New York.”。Dick judged the man to be both friendly and “all right,” from his pleasant, affable manner and his evident knowledge of their pilot’s identity.

Sandy caught and relayed the suggestion as they retained their swinging curve.There was more than Larry had ever dreamed there would be to keep in mind: there was the maintaining of level flight; even in his simplest personal contact with the controls; then there was the job of keeping the horizon line at the right location by watching past a chosen spot on the engine cowling, else they would start to climb or go into a glide. There was the real horizon to distinguish from the false horizon, which an airman knows is, through some trick of the air, the visible horizon that is just a little bit above the true horizon, so that to hold level flight in a forward direction, that false horizon is not held on a line with the top of the engine cowling, but, to hold a line with the true horizon the marking point is held just a trifle below that false, visible horizon line.“There’s the amphibian,” Dick muttered. “Stranded—cracked up, maybe. But—if we could get down and land, we could use her, two of us could, to go to the swamp and see what’s there—before anybody else gets to the life preserver the jewels must have been tied to.”

His eyes, in that position, were almost on a level with the pole-pieces to which wires were joined to enable the switch metal, when thrust between the flat pole contacts, to make contact and complete the electrical circuit.Larry sent his craft into a sharp dive. Tommy, trying to prevent the maneuver, came straight toward the spot they had occupied, but missed.
Before his mind flashed the recollection that in construction plans he had seen provision for getting into the after part of the fuselage.
“All right,” he told himself. “We’ll follow them and see what they do and where they go.”
Next morning the Sky Patrol, the millionaire and others took the train from camp to the harbor.
“I didn’t mean to scare you. But I’ve been awfully busy.”
“If Sandy doesn’t object to losing the nickname, then—” Mr. Everdail smiled a little teasingly.。
“I hear Larry’s been getting instruction off that-there Tom Larsen,” Jeff turned suddenly on Sandy.。
And Jeff, chewing his gum casually, justified their confidence.。
