January 14, 1938. Moshi, Tanganyika: A better picture than No. 1 showing the Ballanca airplane facing Mt. Kilimanjaro, which twice before it has attempted to fly over but both times has been defeated by clouds gathering at the top. The airport stands at about 2,500 feet, and the mountain rises 19,590. On the third and successful occasion the plane climbed to 25,000 feet in about forty-five to fifty minutes.
