LOS ANGELES, March 29 (AP) Captain Frank Hawks, noted aviator, who proposed to pilot a glider, towed by an airplane from san Diego, Calif., to New York City, announced today complete plans for the feat.
The Glider, towed by a small two-place biplane piloted by J. D. Jernigan, Jr., will take off from San Diego early tomorrow morning. Wh. H. Franklin, of Ann Arbor, Michigan, manufacturer of the glider, will accompany Jernigan in the plane.
The trio was here today after having tested the towing arrangement between San Diego and Los Angeles yesterday, but will return to the southern city this morning. Jernigan said the flight itself would be made at the altitude at which smooth air can be found. In order to get overt the mountain after leaving San Diego the glider must be towed to an altitude of 5,000 feet.
The itinerary includes a take-off from San Diego Sunday with overnight stops enroute. The trip is expected to be made in one week.
