MANY forecasts have from time to time been uttered of the ultimate possibilities of really high‐speed flying, by comparison with which the speed even of the present‐day Schneider Trophy seaplane would seem low. Startling prophecies have also been issued to a bewildered public of the results that might be obtainable by climbing to regions of rarefied air high above the earth's surface. But all these glimpses into the future have been in the realm of phantasy and the figures accompanying them were guesses produced by the imaginations of the authors.
