FOREIGN AVIATION NEWS.

Mr. and Mrs. Jas. V. Martin "Farthest North."

  MR. MARTIN, writing from Fairbanks, Alaska, under date July 8th, sends us some photographs of the interested crowds and his flying up yonder. His letter runs as follows:- "I enclose herein views of the "Farthest North" in aeroplaning, at least on this side of the globe. The first flights were made at night, the large pictures with the sun in the background, 10.30 p.m. (not midnight). In order to get to Fairbanks the aeroplane crossed and recrossed the Arctic circle.
  "I am exhibiting in order to raise funds for the Trans-Atlantic flight. You will remember that in December, 1911, I started the present agitation, and I expect to begin the construction of my machine in England some time this coming winter.
  "I wish all my English friends to boost for me, as I shall conduct the flight as England's in every respect.
  "My wife, Miss Irvine, will fly with me.
  "Best wishes for FLIGHT."
  And here's best of luck to Mr. and Mrs. Martin in their endeavours.
