Brothers Begin Flight Over Ocean to Europe

By United Press
HARBOR GRACE, N. F., June 29.

—Benjamin and Joe Adamowicz, soda pop manufacturing brothers of Brooklyn, N. Y., took off at..6:26 a. m. in a single motored plane for Warsaw, Poland. The weather was fine and there was a westerly wind to give them a boost on their eastward flight.

Before their start the brothers took aboard 610 gallons of gasoline for their white and blue Bellanca, cabin plane, which Holger Hoirlis and Otto Hillig flew to Europe three years ago.

Benjamin, the younger brother, is 35 and has passed blind flying tests. Joe is 39. He will fly the plane at intervals to give Benjamin a rest.
