Bad-Weather Landing By Radar Exhibited To Public at Navy Base By W. H. Shipped, Jr. Aviation Editor of The Star. NAVAL AIR STATION. BANANA RIVER, Fla., April 13.—The Navy’s radar system for breaking bad weather traffic jams over busy air ports was demonstrated here this week to acquaint the public with war-developed safety devices. Planes ranging from light two seaters to four-engined transports were “talked down” by ground con trol crews watching the aircraft through precision instruments that showed the least deviation from the exact approach path. Pilots flying under conditions which permitted them to see only their instrument panels were told by radio to turn right or left or to come up or down. Typical ground to-plane instructions went some thing like this: “You are now on the proper ap proach, three miles from touchdown point. Bring your plane up 20 feet . . . that’s it. Glide Angle Correst. “Your glide angle is now correct. Bring it down 10 feet.* You are now in the glide path, one mile from touchdown point. Now it’s a half mile, but you’re 10 feet too low. Bring it up a bit . . . ok. You are at the touchdown point. Take over visually.” The planes were talked down at three-minute intervals. Ordinarily about 15 minutes is required be tween landings when commercial transports are making instrument approaches. This often results in traffic jams of planes circling in holding patterns over busy centers like National Airport or La Guardia Field. The Navy’s fixed tower installa tion here is the only one of its ^ind, although mobile radar units were used extensively by both the Army and Navy during the war. The local system was designed by the Bureau of Ships and installed by Bendix Radio Corp. Under the procedure demon strated here, it is considered safe to land airplanes at three-minute wiici! uie ceiling is only 50 feet and ground visibility down to an eighth of a mile. Havens of Safety. One advantage of the system Is that no special air-borne equip ment is necessary. Any plane car rying a radio receiver can be talked down. Navy experts believe the system will help to establish “ha vens of safety” at big commercial airports where traffic is becoming increasingly heavy. Rear Admiral j. W. Reeves, jr., commander of Naval Air Transport Service, told visiting correspondents that the radar system has con tributed largely to the safety and efficiency of long flights over land and ocean airlanes. The basic idea for the system originated in the Radiation Lab oratory at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, largely through the work of Dr. Louis Alvarez, physicist and amateur pilot. Dr. Alvarez believed that radar could be developed as a safety de vice in addition to its wartime use in directing guns and searchlights. Not Accurate Enough. First experiments were conducted in November and December of 1941 at East Boston Airport and the Naval Air Station at Quonset Point, R. I. Technicians learned, however, that radar sets used in directing guns were not accurate enough to track high-speed airplanes ap proaching at low altitudes. Special equipment was developed to provide radar search scopes cap able of scanning an area within a radius up to 30 miles. These scopes were used in connection with pre cision sets to control the glide ap proach of airplanes. The system was demonstrated for Army and Navy officers at Washing ton in February of 1943. Shortly later contracts were let for production of the equipment, and training programs were begun in the Army, Navy and Royal Air Force. More than 10,000 successful ap proaches were made with the aid of the “talk down” system between January and June of last year, the Navy announced. Meanwhile, the Bureau of Ships has contracted for additional equip ment which will be simpler, less costly and easier to operate. Present system range in cost up to $300,000 and must be operated by crews of from three to eight trained men. Manufacturers are convinced, however, that the cost of the sets can be greatly reduced, along with the operating personnel. DO YOU NEED SCREENS?

This is being done to allow the schoolmates of the cadets to see the parades. The battalion winners will be announced by telephone when the Judges finish racing from stadium to stadium. Awards will be presented in individual ceremonies at each school Tuesday, Lt. Col. William E. Barkman, professor of military sci ence and tactics, said. While considerable color formerly was attached to the opening cadet competition each spring, the experi ment does have the advantage of giving all students a chance to see their bands and battalions march, Col. Barkman said. Previously the cadets began drilling early in the morning at Central, but students were excused only to see the last few minutes of drill and the award cere monies. The judges will begin at Anacostia High School at 9:40 a.m., and finish at Western High School about 4 p.m.. Col. Barkman said. The results will be telephoned first to the Pranklin Administration Building, and then to principals and newspapers. Each high school has one battalion and a band, except Western, which has two battalions. About 1,500 cadets are involved. Results of the band drills will not be announced until the company competition in May, after the bands have held a second round. Names of the judges, all Army of ficers, will be announced tomorrow at Anacostia High School, Col. Bark man said. 2 Die, 7 Hurt as Plane Crashes in Chicago By tht >«»cciat#d Pr«st CHICAGO, April 13.—An Army Air Forces lieutenant and his civil ian brother-in-law were killed today and seven persons were injured when an Army F-6 photographic plane crashed and exploded between a two-story apartment building and a frame house on the North West Side. The Army Sixth Service Com mand said the pilot. First Lt. Ar thur V. Robltschek, jr., 22, of Chi cago had registered his passenger as an Army captain, and that Army officials had no other information concerning the companion. The coroner’s office identified the passenger as Albert Schultz, 26, also of Chicago. Two persons, injured seriously, were residents of the apartment building, which was set afire by flaming gasoline. Minoj; injuriesj were suffered by live others, includ-j ing two firemen who were called to; fight the blaze. The frame house! was partially destroyed by fire. Army Public Relations said the! plane was on a training flight. Welsh Club to Meet The Women's Welsh Club will meet at 8 p.m. tomorrow at the home of Mrs. Raymond .Hoffman, 5414 Carolina place N.,W.
