TESTING NEW FLYING BOAT.

Results So Far Satisfactory.

The series of searching tests to which   the Widgeon flying boat, designed by Squadron leader Wacket, of the Royal   Australian Air Force is being subjected at Richmond (N.S.W.), and which com- menced on Thursday, have so far pro- ceeded satisfactorily. In some quarters   the announcement of the commencement of the tests was construed to mean   that the machine had been in the air. The report on the matter did not justify any     such assumptions. As a matter of fact, no attempts at the flight test will be made until all questions which will     be put have been answered to the com-     plete satisfaction of the authorities. When     the trial flights do take place, the chief officers of all sections of the Air Force will be present, and the Minister for Defense (Hr Neville Howse, V.C.), who hopes that     the machine will be the first to attempt the   flight from Australia to England, will also be a witness other engagements         permit.
