Daily Flight Information

The World Flight will stay in San Francisco today awaiting the engine change on "Boston II" to be completed.

Daily Report
By Lt. L.P. Arnold, "Chicago" Mechanic

Friday: *Everyone slept late this morning since we need to wait for the engine change to be completed on "Boston II." We didn't have much to do, so today was a day of leisure. In the evening we went to the theater before turning in early.

[Editor's Note: Lt. Arnold's journal entries beginning with the Sept. 15 entry are only phrases, but expanded into narrative format for enhanced readability.]
