«. 1952 U.S. Air Force to Seek More Volunteer Civilian Aircraft Spotters in July By ELTON C.

It is hard to Bet civilian volunteers. The Ground Observer Corps is intended to help the Air Force's i Air Defense- Command locate and. 1 Irack unidentified aircraft Hying; too low for radar to delect. USAFj r officials contend that this constant, low-altitude surveillance is vital. Incident Is Cited An officer interested in tire enemy aircraft warning system oiled today an incident in Alaska ss an example. About six weeks ago. he said, a ground observer in Alaska saw what appeared to be the contrail of of a plane. A contrail is the streamer of white vapor left hy .an aircraft flying in cold air or at high altitude. Radar stations in the area could find nothing on their screens. No known friendly craft were in the area. The presumption is that the plane, never identified, was flying at an altitude too low for radar to locate or track. Alaska is only a few hours flight from Soviet air-' 'Wds in Siberia and the Russian l^rHritime peninsula. I.onff Range Aircraft The probability is thai it was not a bomber. It may have been n long-range reconnaissance aircraft, looking over the territory and; photoaraphiriB radar and other military installations. The report of the ground observer «-a.s flashed not only to the Alaskan air defense setup and radar stations of that region but to the United States, where a sta'.e of readiness was ordered umil radar and aerial reconnaissance showed no further trace of the -.] perimeter of the continent, will.

The Alaskan Incident came at almost the exact time the Eastern [ Air Defense Force picked up on radar the presence of two unidentified aircraft . near Pre.sqne Isle. Me., a USAP base. Interceptors were sent up and the planes were Identified as commercial craft. But the coincidence of that radar intercept with the report from Alaska caused uneasy moments. In general, the Air Force estimates that planes flying below ^•,000 feet are nearly impossible to track by radar. This altitude! can be lower in flat terrain or 1 over the ocean, higher in hilly or mountainous country. Ground Observers Xeeded The only solution, the Air Force contends, is to back up the radar net which together with .stations operated by Canada extends from the United States to the Northern Speeding Jeep Driver Gets Ticket from Cop In U.S. Helicopter WITH BRITISH COMMONWEALTH DIVISION.
