Final Tests Are Planned For By-Passed- Bomber By RALPH DIGHTON EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (AP) - The giant KB70A heads into the last phase f its useful existence soon with ne of the world's most versa- le test pilots assigned to sai- age what he can from the by- assed billion-dollar bomber. Joseph A. Walker, 45, holder if world speed and altitude ecords in the X15 rocket plane, las begun training to fly the 500,000-pound XB70A late this pring or summer. As chief engineering test pilot or the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's research center here, Walker will lo research aimed soley at aid ng design of the upcoming supersonic transport -- SST -even though the transport is ikely to bear little resemblance o the XB70A. In exclusive interviews, Paul Bikle, director of the NASA cen er, and Walker said they believe he SST research program scheduled' to last 18 months with he Air Force and NASA shar- ng the $35-million cost, will end the usefulness of the XB70A. "We once were very hot on the idea of using the XB70A as a launching platform for the X15, which now uses the slower B52," Bikle said. "But we've found it just wouldn't be feasible. I don't see anything ahead for the XB70A after the SST research program." When conceived more than a decade ago, the 185-foot XB70A was the prototype of a multibillion-dollar fleet designed to carry nuclear city-busters across oceans at 2,000 miles an hour ^t A-4-DEATHS altitudes of 70,000 feet -- beyond the reach of pursuit craft then flying. Before it could be built, however, intercontinental missiles proved they could do the job faster and cheaper -- and ex- ;remely fast fighters like the YF12A were developed which could shoot it down. The XB70A was scrapped as an operational bomber and only two were built, at a cost of $1.2 billion. Last year NASA put in a bid to share the two XB70A planes with the Air Force. As soon as the Air Force accepts them from North American Aviation, Inc., this spring. NASA will start using them for research. "They are the only planes of that size flying at extreme speeds and altitudes," Bikle said. "The 4,000 m.p.h. X15 and the 2,000 tn.p.h. YF12A are much smaller." So Walker is taking time oui from test-flying a stilt-legged lunar landing research vehicle to learn to fly 1,600 m.p.h. B58 bombers in order to qualify lo pilot the XB70A. Of the fact that he will never again fly the X15. in which he set records of 4,104 m.p.h. and 354.000 feel, Walker says: "Naturally, 1 regret it, but 1 can't have a foot in all the cockpits around here. Besides, who wants to get in a rut?" NASA has installed $2 million worth of instruments on the XB70A. With these il will study: 1 Air friction on the plane's skin, which gets holler than a kitchen stove (more lhan GOO degrees Fahrenheit'. Unless controlled by insulation or refrigeration, such heat means discomfort for passengers and dangerous structural weakening. 2. Noise generated by the swift flow of air along the fuselage and wings. Louder lhan an automobile horn a few inches away, the noise must be quieted for passenger comfort and structural safety. 3. High altitude turbulence. This little known phenomenon can buffet a plane the way gusts toss a ship at sea. 4. Sensitivity of hydraulic con- trols. Wing and tail surfaces are too large to be controlled by human muscle alone; hydraulic pressures, many times greater than those which help a driveft brake his car, move tail «nIJ wing flaps half a block from the pilot's cabin.
