Weapons Training Center for Crete Urged
Chania, Crete—U.S. and Great Britain are jointly pressing for the establishment of a North Atlantic Treaty Organization air weapons training center at Timbakian on this island’s south-central coast. The facility would perform the functions of Wheelus Air Base, from which the U.S. was evicted by Libya in May, 1970 (AW&ST Mar. 23, 1970, p. 14).
