More > Dashaway into an exciting new adventure! Dave Dashaway is a young pilot in the exciting first years of aviation in the early twentieth century when most things that flew with a motor were biplanes. When his father, a noted balloonist, died, a mean old skinflint named Silas Warner had been appointed his guardian. Despite Silas Warner's machinations, Dave's natural love for aeronautics won out, and he'd already had adventures on his way to becoming a well-known pilot. Hiram Dobbs is Dave's friend. Together the two have an even more exciting adventure with hydroplanes on the Great Lakes. It started with a fateful telegram. And then a plane was stolen! But the crooks were in a plot far bigger than just plane theft. Would the next landing for Dave Dashaway be a watery grave?< Less

More > São Paulo city, São Paulo State, Brazil. During the landing, at 18:54 local time, the aircraft veered to the left, overran the left edge of the runway, collided with a building, and with a fuel service station.
