The Experiments Continued
Experiments continued on 20 August 1896. This time the team consisted of Avery, Herring, Chanute and Charles Chanute, Dr. Ricketts and a Russian sailor, William Paul Butusov. Butusov stated that he had made true soaring flights in Kentucky several years earlier. The group took a flatbed boat to Dune Park, a desolate site at Lake Michigan where it was hoped that newspaper reporters would not find them as easily as they did during the previous month at Miller Beach.
