Birds of Paradise - KAI Show, Patrick Ching 2016
Most of us know of the Bird of Paradise flower. But not many are familiar with the airplane of the same name that made the first flight between North America and Hawaii. With their navigation devices malfunctioned and guiding by the stars, the pilots overshot their destination on Oahu and were heading past the main Hawaiian Islands. In the lower horizon, they saw the steadily blinking flash of the Kilauea Lighthouse. They recalculated their course and landed safely at Schofield field on Oahu, crediting the Lighthouse with saving their mission, and their lives.
