The Guggenheim Safety Competition Tests and the Curtiss "Tanager"

THE Daniel Guggenheim Safe Aircraft Competition, which culminated in the award of the first prize of $100,000 to the Curtiss Aeroplane & Motor Company, was announced on April 20, 1927, for the avowed purpose of achieving “a real advance in the aerodynamic characteristics of heavier-than-air craft without sacrificing the good practical qualities of present day aircraft.”

MR. M.B.N. of Oneida, N. Y., sends in an interesting newspaper clipping from the Syracuse Herald, describing an accident in which Robert Black and Ray Rothman "escape death in a 1,000-mile glide to Roosevelt Field, L. I." We suppose the death they escaped would have been caused by starvation.
