Hi all. I am sorry but I don't know where can I find help for my issue. And maybe you guys can help me. I am spanish and I am not sure if I read it correctly or if the word really exist but, in any case, the word exist in fact. But, first I must explain a little things.

I have a book about the history of the aviation. And, this book have some reproductions of some real documents. And one of them consist in the "little" log used by Arthur W. Brown the man that crossed the atlantic without scales firstly with John Alcock in the famous Vickers Vimy. All was writed with pencil so it is hard to me read it. But I think that I can read this.

"At 15-10 (this means 15:10 g.m.t.) ran into thich for bank at 3500 m- and spiralled down to 100 before recovering. Climbed to 6200 log (maybe log I am not sure) 15-48 but unable to get any obs. "

The word that I can't find in word reference or in the google translator, is "thich".

Please :3 Is here someone with capacity to know and explain to me it's meaning?

PD: I can only say that the word is relationed with Air speed. Cause the same word appear in the field labeled like A.S. (A.S. for Air Speed)

"thich for bank" = "thick fog bank".

"thich for bank" = "thick fog bank".

Most likely this is correct, especially as this seems to be is saying he could not get a star fix or other observations (obs) for navigation at the end.


I think log may be an abbreviation for "level over ground" but it could also be something else as the hand writing may be indistinct.

Could this be a log entry at 15:48hrs
