New York in 1.3 Hours! "BHOW LONG until supersonic transports enter your life? An intriguing and much-discussed question with the answers varying from 5 to 15 years. One man whose guess should come closer than most is R. W. Rummell who. in his capacity as vice president of planning and research for Trans World Airlines, has hccn engaged in supersonic study since 1954. Rummell helieves that, considering technological factors, you should he able to hoard a supersonic transport by 1969 or 1970. That means, brother, that in eight or nine years you'll be able to swish through the Wild Blue Yonder at a speed that will top M.icli 3, thrice the speed of sound at 2,000 mph: IN OTHER WORDS, the hop from Los Angeles' In- ternntional Airport to New York will take one hour and 20 minutes! In an article "TWA Plans for the Supersonic Era" in the summer issue of TWA Ambassador, he also touches on the problems connected w i t h bringing supersonic travel to the masses. You don't build a supersonic airliner merely by attaching more powerful engines to current airframe designs, he points out. Thai's because the aerodynamic laws that apply to subsonic flight do not necessarily prevail at speeds of 2,000 mph. For instance, wing shapes that are the most e f f i c i e n t - for subsonic speeds become almost totally ineffective at three times the speed of sound. Yet, the supersonic airliner must operate in both speed realms ---subsonic for takeoffs and landings, and supersonic during cruise. That's going to require a highly adaptable wing, one that hasn't been developed yet. ANOTHER THING that must be positively assured is passenger comfort. Travelers must not be conscious of the extreme speed, altitude and temperature v a r i a n c e s i n which the supersonic craft will operate. This means science must come up with new metal alloys that can endure these variances. Pressurization systems must be devised that can operate at a fantastic rale so as to maintain comfortable conditions inside the plane during rocket- like climbs and descents. Also, says Rummell, because of ils tremendous speed and complexity, the supersonic transport will require more automatic devices to assist 'the'crew.' If is 'likely, he thinks,' *tliai* 'computefs ahd By Fred Taylor Kraft Inrfepvndenl, Prevs-Teleorjnn Travel Editor automatic control mechanisms will guide the plane during most of its flight, with manual control by the crew coming only during takeoffs and landings. "DEVELOPMENT of the B70, the military's proposed Mach 3 bomber, could help materially in many ways the origin of a 2,000 mph commercial airliner," says R u m - mell. "However, it is most likely that developments will not be controlled by technological skills, but by avail- a b i l i t y of the untold millions of dollars that will be involved." That is the hitch, as it will, most likely, l i m i t the development. Anyone's guess as to "when" could be good. So, don't hold your breath u n t i l the supersonic transport is developed. There's plenty of time for that when you take your scat in one for the first time, and prepare to take off! CLOSED - CIRCUIT television will he used for the first time in the annals of international shipping to picture the arrival in San Francisco--on July 20--of the new I'O- Orient luxury liner Canberra. The Canberra, on her maiden voyage around the world, arrives in Los Angeles Harbor at 9 a.m. July 23.
