CORPS TO BE FORMED IN
FIRST FLIGHT IN CANTERBURY
CnrusTcnußCH, December 21
It i 3 probable that the Dominion gift Bleriot monoplane will be brought into active flight in the near future, i An effort is being made to organise an aviation corps, which without requiring financial assistance from tbe Defence Department, will be under the control of the authorities. As Lieutenant Hammond, who is a quali fled officer of tbe Royal Flying Corps, is associated with the movement, it may meet with official approval,
It is hoped that (he monoplane will be taken to Auckland to show at the military tournament in connection with the exhibition.
The first attempts at flying will probably be held in Canterbury, if consent is given by the Department.
