#FantasyFreeFlight event update: Up until the national contest, C.V. Obst held the world’s record for hydro-launched duration. He set the record with this “flying boat.”
Too bad he is unable to compete in the Gray Club’s Hydro-Launched Duration event during the national contest since it was re-scheduled due to bad weather. (“Model News Column,” Aerial Age Weekly, May 10, 1915 and October 4, 1915)
