New Scottish Flying Ground.

   AT the opening of the new flying ground of the Scottish Aviation Co. at Barrhead on the 3rd inst., the strong wind unfortunately prevented any actual flying. The visitors, however, were much interested in the Caledonia monoplane and also in the Bleriot school machine, the details of which were explained by Mr. F. Norman, the general manager. Arrangements have been completed for building both monoplanes and biplanes, the latter being suitable for carrying one or two persons.
