Some assemblymen began to view with alarm the large amount of money which has been spent at the marine airport on Darrell’s island after Pan-American Airways initiated a landplane service at the U.S. Army’s Kindley Field under a temporary arrangement.

A giant Constellation made the flight from New York t o Bermuda in two and a half hours, an all-time record.

The only comfort for these members is that the British Overseas Airways continues to use flying boats on the run from Baltimore to Bermuda but how long they will withstand the competition of landplanes is doubtful. Britain’s answer may have to be purchase of American equipment.
