I MR. HAWKER'S WORLD RECORD. I Mr. H. G. Hawker has beaten the world's aeroplane height record. Flying at Brook- lands in a Sopwith fighting biplane ntted with 110-h.p. Clerget motor, he reached an alti- tude of 7,200 metres, or about 24,000 feet (4t milea), according to the baragraph chart now in the hands of the Royal Aero Club for confirmation. The flight was carried out under the super- vision of an omcial of the club. Mr. Hawker thus beat the British height record made by himself last June, when he rose 18,393 feet, the official world's record of 20,757 feet ac- complished by the late G. Legagneux, and the later omcial French record of 22,171 feet made by E. Audemars, a SwM6 aviator, on September 8, 1915. A German airman, Heinrich Oeler, was stated to have attained a height of 25,000 feet on July 14, 1914, but this flight has not been oSiciaIIy recognised.
