1WO Air Force Plans Unique Fighter Highspeed Plan* Will •• Flown from Pro** Position *T WBUMi r. XcJftMuniii UB*fcrf FtMt Stiff CarrapoRdMit WASHINGTON, May M. (UP) — Tht Air fort* it working on designs for » new high speed plane that *ould bt piloted by a m«n lying on Tht idmntagM of piloting a plan* from a prone position me many,, according to Maj. Gen. Malcoun o. Grow, air surgeon. • H« laid preliminary tests showed that men could He prone for eight hours or more in perfect comfort. Som« men reported after the lest* they were less tired than If they had been In a sitting position. A pilot In a prone position can dive and execute other sudden maneuver! with far leas chanct of "blocking put," Grow said. Tht reason for developing ships whereby trie pilot would lie down Is simple. In a small fighter plane built to approach and pass the speed of sound, nothing must break the smoothness of the streamlining. Most present fighter plain's have a bubble canopy for the pilot and a thick' fuselage. Grow said he reasoned that the flying wing >a« the most perfect); streamlined shape for an airplane. By having the pilot lying In a prone position, even a fighter plane of this design could be perfectly streamlined. Eliminate Canopy This would eliminate the bubble canopy as well as the fuselage. The pilot would lie pront in the center of the plane, facing fonvnrrt. The flying wing would be open In front, except for a smooth cnnopv that would not break the streamlining. His vision above and to the rear would be assisted by means of mirrors and periscopes. These problems are still to he worked out. Grow believes that young men learning to fly will learn faster lying down than In conventional aircraft. Signs of the Times in Germany UKT.T COURIER HEW! German.
