Medical Factor Studied in Bellanca Crash

The aircraft was on a private flight from Sleap to Abbotsinch via Hawarden and had been cleared to Hawarden NDB at 2,500 ft. About 3 min. after takeoff it descended below cloud and crashed at high speed into a grass hillock at Welshampton. The aircraft disintegrated on impact and the three occupants were killed.

Net Barrier System to Be Tested in France

Geneva-Hispano-Suiza/ Aerazur aircraft arresting barrier system at ToulouseBlagnac Airport in France will be tested beginning next month with a Sud Caravelle jet transport. Larger aircraft such as the Boeing 707 are scheduled to be used later in the test program.

Editorial

Problems of Prosperity

As planning goes forward for this expansion, let me suggest that serious consideration be given to the effect upon travelers of high ground costs and the effect upon airlines of high airport costs. Both are creeping up, and both can work to shrink the amount of travel that Europe should expect to have in the next decade.

Planar Electroluminescent Cell Developed

Buffalo, N. Y.—Increased brightness, longer life and adaptability to largescale displays are advantages claimed for electroluminescent (EL) cells made in single-surface rather than multilayer configuration. This planar cell arrangement has been used in a display panel designed and built by the Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Radio Astronomy Explorer-A satellite (AW&ST Nov. 13, cover).
