Naval Academy, Byrd’s dream was dashed when polar explorer Robert Peary proclaimed that he was the first person to reach the North Pole. “The day that Peary discovered the North Pole was the darkest day of my life,” said Byrd. This wasn’t the only setback to derail his dream. At the Naval Academy, Byrd was a fierce and reckless athlete. Although he was average in height and very lean, Byrd was really strong and powerful.
Still, Byrd couldn’t begin his flight to the North Pole until he received a decent weather report from the meteorologist on the trip, good-natured Bill Haines. Haines, who everyone called “Cyclone,” was always calm, slow, and methodical — unless there was an emergency. Then he moved like a cyclone. His skill as a meteorologist was critical to Byrd’s success. If the weather report was wrong, it could spell disaster for Byrd and Bennett. Byrd was still waiting for good weather on the morning of May 7.

This is known as local magnetism. Byrd also had to take into account the compass’s fluctuations in this part of the world.
