It was difficult to say what would happen when the Saints encounter Natives on the trail. There were many good chance meetings when either the Saints benefitted or the Natives.

a. Elder George Albert Smith
The same year George Albert Smith became an apostle, the Wright brothers made their first flight (1903). Some 17 years later, President Smith finally had the chance to fly. He took a plane over the English Channel in 1920, becoming the first General Authority ever to use an airplane for transportation.
