I The powerful drought causes a l keen sensation of cold, which is the first symptom complained of, and deafness is very soon experienced. The reduced supply of oxygen caused by the rapid movement and the : fall of the atmospheric pressure I gives rise to vomiting and visual | hallucinations. I A dangerous and frequent symp- j torn is the desire for sleep, occur- I ring some lime during living, in ! spite of the aviator's strenuous ef forts to keep awake. 1 A very unpleasant sensation is : that of dizziness caused by the alti tude of tin? aeropJane, the result be- j ing ...
