As we slowly advanced up the bay, numerous canoes pushed off from the surrounding shores, and we were soon in the midst of quite a flotilla of them, their savage occupants struggling to get aboard
of us, and jostling one another in their ineffectual attempts.
After a manual push, I flew the CV 1, rolled out on final bearing, and prepared to get aboard
. When I descended out of 1,200 feet and cleared the marine layer, I could see one aircraft between the ship and my aircraft.
