"All objective! were accomplished," Donald "Deke" Slayton, former astronaut who li managing this phase of the shuttle program, announced shortly after die the 75-ton orUter completed ita twisting, turning 30-mtte glide to a landing on a dry desert lakebSf "Everything went essentially perfect and continued that way through the night "The ship Is In good shape and we're ready to go again." The maneuvers, comparable but more complicated than those in the first free flight last month, tested the ability of astronauts Joe Engel, 43, and Richard Truly, 38, to pilot the unpowered Enterprise to a safe landing. A third free-fall flight Is scheduled for Sept 27, with a fourth test planned in the middle of October. Tuesday's flight was postponed from Aug. 30 because a tropical storm drenched the desert runways.

Officials said the delay caused no proMemu did not affect the five-minute, 28 second glide to earth from an altitude of 28300 feet. Seconds after explosive bolts blew the two ships apart, the Enterprise veered right and up for a tight left turn, followed by a broader turn. The craft reached a speed of 330 mph but air brakes slowed it to a landing speed of 212 mph at touchdown. The two astronauts took turns steering the Enterprise and punching out computer instructions and both praised the ship's maneuverability "It flew very well," Engles said after the flight. "I impressed with the airplane." Truly concurred, "It's an excellent handling machine." The shuttle orblter is to be launched from Cape Canveral In March, 2t79, for Its first orbit. The first payioad, scientific instruments to probe the earth's land and sea environments and storm systems, will be put into orbit later that year. The spaceship is to start taking men ana equipment on round trips to outer spt.ce in the 1960s.
