LaGuardia i came to the outfit as a Ki-Wi, the name applied to ground officer* who, like the Australian bird of that name, can’t fly. It was a de sire on LaGuardia'* part to rem edy this that led to the incident of the berserk aircraft Wrecks and accidents were common occurrence in the Italian bi-planes used in training, accord ing to Dr. Adriance. One pilot fell 4,000 feet from hia open cockpit After cracking up five aircrafts, a pilot was dubbed an “Austilan Ace.” Walter Wanger. movie pro duoer who made “We’ve tyjver Been Licked," missed the tide by only a slight margin.
