Gibert Lands on a Roof.

  AFTER a long rest Gibert has returned to aviation, but his return was inauspicious. On the 8th, he went up at Issy on a Vendome monoplane, and on getting to a height of 500 metres flew round the Eiffel Tower. Soon after he commenced a vol plane, and seemingly miscalculated the rate of descent. When about thirty metres from the ground he switched on, but the motor refused to start, and the machine crashed on to the roof of a tile-works. Surprisingly little damage was done to roof and machine, whilst the pilot was unhurt.
