Arrive Friday and Fly
Saturday Instead of Sun
day; to Land at Field
Revised plans for the exhibition in
Omaha of the American and British
fleet of aviators call for the display
flights in Omaha on Saturday, as
originally planned, instead of Sunday,
as was announced Tuesday. The
- flyers will arrive in the city Friday,
says Lieut. E. G. Montgomery, ad
vance officer for the aviation mission,
now in the city, and. after flying over
the downtown section of the city Sat
urday will leave for St. Paul, the next
stop on their itinerary.
The return to the original schedule
.was made possible through the short
ening of the Des Moines exhibition
from two days to one day. The fly
ers will spend only Thursday at Des
Moines, -giving exhibition flights at
the fair and will arrive in Omaha
Friday morning. It is planned to
have the party land at the Field club
grounds, which have been inspected
by Commissioner Manley of the
Chamber of Commerce and by Major
Van Nostrand of Fort Omaha.
Ten American planes and three
British planes make up the party

Hispano-Suiza motors. Two are De
Havilands equipped with Liberty mo
tors and with four machine guns
each, two on each plane shooting
through the propellor and two op
erated by the observer in the rear of
the pilot Two speed scout planes
make up the American section. '
Immelmann turns, vertical banks,
loops, tail spins, spinning nose dives,
barrel rolls and side slips will be
some of the stunts which will thrill
Omahans in the spectacular aerial
combat between Lieuts. Samuel M.
Connell and T. E. Welsh of the
American air service.
This aerial combat will demon
strate all of the difficulties which at
tend the maneuvering of two hostile
scout planes for advantageous positions.
