FLYING AROUND THE NORTH ATLANTIC 321 A WARNING TO SEA CAPTAINS BETWEEN THE MADEIRA AND CANARY ISLANDS A volcanic peak has shoved its grotesque nose above the pounding sea where it breaks over one of the lonely Salvage group. The white line running through its sand and gravel floor is a trail worn by fishermen from the Canaries who go to the island during the summer. A corner of Tingmissartoq's tail surface shows at the left. Photographs by Charles and Anne Lindbergh ROLLING SEAS PREVENTED A LANDING HERE Funchal's little harbor on Madeira seemed to the Lindberghs too small for a landing, so Tingmissartoq dipped its wings in greeting and proceeded to Las Palmas, in the Canary Islands.
