Ecuador has been the scene of considerable aerial activity of late. An expedition headed by Capt. Erskine Loch has recently completed a fifteen months’ survey for an aerial route across the Andes to the eastern provinces in the Amazon Basin and now the aerial mapping expedition of the Heye Foundation from New York is reported as planning to fly over this route for photographic mapping purposes as well as attempting to photograph the craters of the volcanoes Chimborazo, Cotopaxi, Illiniza, Sanguay, Tun- guarhua, and Cayambe for mapping purposes.
