Read brought his big airplane, NO-4 to a safe landing iu Lisbon harbor at 4;02 New York time this afternoon having made the 800 mile air Journey from this port in 9 hours and 4 4 minutes, an average of about 80 nautical miles an hour.  NC-4 has now covered 3,150 nautical miles since she left Rockaway for Halifax on May 8 and her time for the actual cross ocean dight trout Trepassey, X. F., to Lisbon, is 26 hours and 4 6 minutes. The best steamship time across the Atlantic is four days, seventeen hours and six minutes, made by the Mauretania on February 20, 1909.
