Title: Bing Making Engine Adjustments
Author: Niebergall, Ernst
Description: Sanduskians eagerly watched George Bing as he made adjustments to his engine during a test flight on the Sandusky Bay ice. Bing's design resembled that of the Hudson flier Glenn Curtiss had flown successfully from Euclid Beach to Cedar Point, Ohio, in 1910. However, Bing believed he had incorporated new and important safety features in his biplane. Safety was an important component if a regular air mail route between Sandusky, Ohio, and Kelley's Island were to be established.
