Side Slips

IT IS refreshing to find that our best pilots will readily admit having been lost on some of their flights, instead of blaming their errors on compasses, as we often suspect pilots of lesser ability of doing. After wandering around in sleet storms and fog for half of his coast-to-coast record flight, Jimmie Doolittle’s comment was “Yes, I got badly lost—guess the old man is slipping.”
