恶魔殿下的天使之吻: 。Or, as Larry taxied, learning to manage speed on the ground by use of wider throttle for more speed, cutting down the gas if the craft began going too fast, he would catch an error: 搜狗小说
恶魔殿下的天使之吻“No ghost with any self-respect would make a show of himself for newspaper publicity!” Dick chuckled.
“The flares died just too soon,” Dick informed him. “Maybe Mr. Everdail saw more than we did.”
CHAPTER XXIX SANDY’S TRAILDick, examining with the thoroughness of an expert, with Jeff’s and his chum’s life perhaps depending on his care, stated that he saw no damage to the waterproofed coverings of the water supports. Declaring that they would stand by and watch the airplane, Sandy and Dick watched Larry and Jeff get settled, Dick spun the propeller to pump gas into the still heated cylinders, Jeff gave the “switch-on—contact!” call, Dick, pulling down on the “prop,” sprang aside to avoid its flailing blades, and the amphibian’s engine took up its roar.
“There’s no life preserver in the boat either—so that’s what the mystery man used to swim away with—Mr. Everdail’s jewels!” he added.
Flying close to three thousand feet above Oyster Bay, level and stable, the airplane seemed to be in perfect condition.
The tall, slim pilot, grinned at the compliments and then went on working his jaws on the gum he habitually chewed.
“By the way,” Captain Parks turned to his employer. “How about that cruise around New York to see the buildings lighted up that you told me to get the yacht ready for?” 恶魔殿下的天使之吻:“I agree with Sandy,” Miss Serena declared. “It was a very fine thing——”
“If no one else knows I’m around—I can watch and see a lot that others might miss. I’m going to have that seaplane brought here—and then I’ll be around, watching to see who comes snooping—if anybody does. As I live and breathe, I think that’s a great idea, don’t you?”
“All the same,” Larry commented, “Jeff didn’t put the preserver in his fuselage, and Captain Parks could open his safe and no one else knew how, he declared! There are some things I can’t work out and I wish I could.”
“I’ll have to swim over again and see.” Larry stripped and made the short water journey. “Hello! It has! At ten o’clock. Thank you. Someone has been using our house telephone, then. Goodbye!”
“We can get somewhere, anyhow,” Larry insisted. “Captain Parks, can you account for your men?”。
The amphibian was even more slow.。
That could be true, Sandy admitted. But he argued that the girl must have seen the captain take the stern life preserver to his cabin, and might have guessed, even observed through a cabin port, what he did. In that case she would have thrown over the life preserver knowing that her confederate would put it in the seaplane. And he had done exactly that!。
