He was a little worried lest the wind die out, but when he got outsidehe noted with satisfaction that the gale was stronger than at first. Infact it did considerable damage in Shopton, as Tom learned later. It certainly was a strong wind. An ordinary aeroplane never could havesailed in it, and Tom was doubtful of the ability of even his bigairship to navigate.
In the days that followed Tom and his friends worked hard. The airglider was made as nearly perfect as any machine is, and in a fairlystiff gale, that blew up about a week later, Tom did some things in itthat made his friends open their eyes. The young inventor had it undernearly as good control as he had his dirigible balloons or aeroplanes. The big airship, too, was made ready for the long voyage, extra largestorage tanks for gasolene being built in, as it was doubtful if theycould get a supply in Siberia without arranging for it in advance, andthis they did not want to do.
It was just this way with the airglider-it was mounting upward on a slant. The Russian said nothing, but he looked his thanks to Tom, and themanner in which he grasped the hand of our hero showed his deepfeelings. I'm going up a couple of hundred feet at least," answered Tom, "andhigher if the gale-strata is there. Tom decided to change some of the weights, and he devoted allhis time to this alteration, while Ned, Mr. Damon, and the otherslabored to get the big airship in shape for the long trip to the landof the exiles.

Tom Swift and his Airship is the third book in the Tom Swift series and the first one with a vehicle that’s somewhat out of the ordinary. Not exactly thrilling stuff for a modern reader but then again we don’t live in 1910. To my disappointment the villains of this story are the same villains in the previous two books. But wait you say, didn’t Tom have the crooks arrested and sent to jail. Yup, but they immediately escaped and inexplicably went back to Shopton to rob the towns bank. This is a gang that seems incredibly flexible in their crimes.
