Mysterious aviator, USA, 1909:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Fort Wayne Daily News, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA, on December 20, 1909.


Mysterious Aviator

Boston, December 20. - Recent statements of Wallace Tillinghast , an aviator of Worcester Mass., that he had flown to New York and back were given new life here today by the story told by Arthur W. Hoe of the United States Immigration station, who declared he saw a mysterious airship pass over Boston early today. Aroused by whistle in the harbor, Hoe says he looked out and saw the dark frame of an airplane, bearing lights, come up against the wind and pass him going at a good speed. Hoe’s story is taken as possibly confirming that of Tillinghast, the Worcester inventor, who still declares he is navigating the heavens over New England and that he will prove his claims when he gets ready.
