Who is going to say whether an applicant is competent to pilot a balloon or airship?
Captain Bob has been a Sandy Hook pilot for some years back.
That afternoon it cleared off, and we found a pilot lying a little outside of us.
At the Long Sault, we were all put in boats, with a Canadian pilot in each end.
Not a pilot would come out, and if they had, it would have done us no good.
We put our pilot on board this ship, which was doing a good turn all round.
The pilot immediately said, “Why, where could he have been brought up?”
The keel was laid for a ship of thirty-five tons, to be named the Pilot.
He was like a pilot who finds the tempest too strong for him.
The pilot of the incoming plane was there, too, and the radio man.
