PLANES HUM OVER ROCK But there were . other thin°s to keep the situation lense. Planes ;f all descriptions have flown, day and night since the revolution started, above or near Gibraltar. Some of them have' boon planes "legitimately" in the service of either government or rebels. Others, it lias been whispered, are planes from Italy, France and Germany, flying without idenlifi- catir.n to deliver men ami munitions for the rebellion. Regardless of tlicir identity or purpose, these planes have put a burden on Gibraltar; a burden of apprehension lest efforts to remain neutral should be wiped cut by a more serious "accident." As a result of the course of the revolt, the straits of Gibraltar now swarm with sea craft of all sorts, the majority of them willi guns imlimbered and crews strinped for action.
