Saturday's fatal dive began from an estimated height of eight miles Derry dove directly at the air drome, witnesses said, and the plane flew to bits a moment afte; he levelled off. Wonder Jet Explodes in Flight at Show FARNBOROUGH, Eng. W — A wonder jet fighter—exploded in a supersonic flight before 120,000 spectators at the Farnborough Air Show Saturday killing its famed pilot and 26 persons. Sixty-three spectators %vere listed as injured. The dead pilot is John Derry, first British aviator to exceed the speed of sound and live to tell about it. After three violent blasts apparently occurring as the plane broke through the sound barrier, it flew to pieces in a blinding flash directly over the crowd. A dozen pieces spiralled to earth. The fuselage crashed into a hillside and police said both Derry and a companion, not immediately identified, were killed instantly. A number of persona were reported injured by the crash. Ambulances sped to the wrecked fuselage. Police and soldiers circled portions of the field where the wreckage fell. Four bodies were dragged out of one tangle of debris. The De Havilland 110 is a twin- boom aircraft with sharply sweptback wings. First tested in 1951, it exceeded the speed of sound in trials held last April. The ship, which carries two crewmen, is unusually large for a fighter because it has special radar and other bulky equipment. Since last April's Allies Plan Completion of Truce Talks By JOHN M. HIGHTOWEB -WASHINGTON, Sept. 6 (ffl—Th United States and its Korean Wa allies are planning an intensiv drive in the*United Nations to try to get the Korean truce talks oi dead center and so raise new pros pects for peace this year. Consultations are underway among Washington, London, Paris and other capitals of the group o U. N. nations which have militar; forces righting against the Nortt Korean and Chinese Reds in th stalemated conflict. The precise line and strategy tc be followed in the United Nation general assembly meeting in Ne\ York next month are still to b worked out, but Western diplomats agreed today that the discussion had proceeded far enough to mak the overall purpose clear. One possibility which hot United States and Allied inform ants flatly ruled out, in talks witt a reporter, is that the Westerr powers would favor moving th armistice negotiations from Pan munjon in Korea to the U. N headquarters at New York. Th Reds may press for this, some what along the line they followe in the Paris session of the gen eral assembly last year, but at th moment the Western powers are reported dead set against it. The reason for their opposition informed sources declared, is tha the problem of ending the conflic is a military and not a politica problem and the place to hold mi] itary talks is in the battle area To negotiate on political question with the fight still going on, Wesl ern officials have long contended would be negotiating with a pisto at one's head. On the other hand, it is clear from the progress in Allied con ferences to date that the United States and its associates have re vised in part the position on thi Korean issue which they held t stubbornly at the general assembly meeting a year ago. The explana tion given by officials here for thii change is that the circumstance; of the Korean truce talks have changed radically in a year. •Business Notes Elmer G.
