Smith, IMUdii" Toronto 'Newis, tnombcr of the (lolegatlon bf CanadUin newepapormou In England.)-White exftmlning 311-taln'B WOT eiMorts It waa my privilege . yestortlay to visit ono ot the largest ; anti-submarine airplane baBoa on the British coast.. 1 saw, tlie noweet and j largest seaplanes, of'soaboats as they aomotlmes are called, and had an hour's flight over tlio English Channel in one which has bombed more than one submarine. My pilot was a man wlio fta� participated In dai-lng exploits. This particular fiirplano whicli Is of an improved type, has ,, oxtraordinaif wing expansion and ' travels at an immense speed. It c�r- rlea bombs of an almost unimaginable weight and desitructlvo power. 1 Today Mr. Maoklln, of the Winnipeg � rroo Press, and myself took a trip over London In a land biplane In company with a rsolobratod English pi-lot, who was testing out4he now Liberty motors, with which this machine was equipped. Starting from an aerodrome and speeding up from 70 to 90 miles an hour, wo rapidly climbed Into the upper atmosphere. In ei^t and a bait minutes, wo travelled twelve miles as moasurod on the ground, end hung over the ihoart Of the city at an altt-tilde of 10;000 feet. �yds Park, Buckingham Palace, the parliament 'build* ings, Trafalgar Square, Nelson's mon-umimt, the Strand, St.,Raul's Catltod-ral, the Thawea and mtwalnent ob� 'Joots In aoutb London, ware plnlnlf dI�oamlble from this great elevation. From a height of noarly two miles St. l^ul's rosoinbleB a pawn on a cheas ��board, while the bridges across tho rivop'' appear to bo about the size of matches. The Imporlul capital far beneath suggested a chess board or a form In the composing room ot a printing office. � For the tetum- Journey the pilot simply shut oft his engine and we tobogganed down at 80 miles an hour. Despite the immense speed at which we travelled thero was little sensation ot rapid movement for the slmplo reason that there were no telegraph poles or other objects with which to measure the rapidity of the flight.
