New Passenger Height Record.

AFTER spending a couple of days at Issy practising for the event, Mahieu, on the 22nd inst., succeeded in beating the passenger height record, carrying his friend, M. Fay, to a height of 2,460 metres in 55 mins. He then descended to about 1,500 metres, and passed over Choisy and the environs of Paris before landing again at Issy. He was flying one of the new Voisin military machines. The old record was Montalent's 2,250 metres made at Brooklands.

Mahieu Flying Home.

AFTER improving on the passenger height record, Mahieu decided to fly back on his Voisin machine to his chateau between Lille and Ypres. He left Issy on Saturday afternoon, and landed at Douai owing to the darkness at half past six, his flight having taken an hour and a quarter.
