384 THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE LOWERING DR. KOCII-GRUNBERG TO HIS LAST RESTING PLACE: VISTA ALEGRE An old explorer in this region, the jungle called him from Germany and finally claimed him (see text, page 377). To the right is the grave of an Englishman and the graves of Portuguese and Brazilians, most of whom had died of malaria. IN "DRY DOCK" AT BOA VISTA: REPAIRING THE IIYDROPLANE HULL This was the best place on the Rio Branco for pulling out a plane, as there was a good slope, a clay bottom, and plenty of help to push the heavy machine well out of the water. The hull and fuselage were sandpapered and repainted and the wings patched wherever holes were found.
