AVIATION IN AUSTRALIA AND PIONEERS.
By J. R. DUIGAN.

  I WAS very interested to see in FLIGHT of March 16th an article on "Aviation in Australia and Pioneers," and as the subject is evidently of interest I am sending you a brief account with photos of my own early efforts.
  1st attempt, 1909. A pair of wings only. Result, not a success.
  2nd effort, early 1910. 1/2-size Wright glider (Photo enclosed). Flown in strong winds, anchored to 120 yards of fencing wire. Left ground successfully and rose 4 or 5 ft.
