The planes —„ litle two-seat ships to giant transport. Their armament may be spray guns, cameras, fire extinguishers, first aid packs, food bundles, stretchers for sick and Injured or droppahle lite boats. Thc biggest job they do is simply transportation. They serve the special needs of agencies where airline service is not practical. The government's non-military air fleet is scattered among thc Atomic Energy Commission (AKC), (lie Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Interior, Justice, State and Treasury, and such independent agencies as the Federa! Security Agency (PSA). Civil A<Ti>iiiuit!c.s Hoard ICAB) and Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). .Many Fiijlil Malaria The ATC uses five airplanes for travel, patrol of restricted areas and to fight mosquitos. Thc- TVA uses eight planes for photography, aerial mapping, control ol malaria breeding spots and power line inspection. Thc Public Health Service, under the F3A, has four planes for epidemic control work, suc-h as aerial distribution of insecticides. The CAB uses planes to rush accident illustrators to crash scenes, for trB-1 and for checking flight procedures ami air navigation equipment. The Agriculture Department has more than -10 airplanes for its studies of control of crop and forest diseases, lor flying "smoke jumpers" to (ight fires in remote woodland are^s and for patrol of forests. The Initcrior Department uses about 40 aircraft .mostly in enforcing fish and g&mR laws, for fishery research and wild animal surveys. However, it also uses olanes to Inspect power lines, to survey areas for new lines, and for geophysical exploration and travel. One of its planes is owned by the Alaska Railroad, a department agency. An important mercy job is done by air through the Coast Guard, which Iras 50 planes and expects to double the number. A third of Its fleet is helicopters. All are available for rescuing accident survivors, help- In? people in remote r.rcas in need of 'supplies v or hospitalizalion nnd chasing ^nuiElers. The Justice Department uses Its planes to patrol the nation's borders against illegal entry, and ferry migration inspectors to emergency jobs; Improvements Tested Some of the outstanding advances In aviation technique arc tested in flight iiy pUines based at the -three great laboratories of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics. The Department of State, with its global interests, has but two planes—one assigned to the civil R.'r attache in London, thc other to the air attache in Rio de Janeiro. However, the State Departmenl makes considerable use of big transports operated by the Military Ail Transport. Service (MAT'S) to car- ranking guests from other nations MATS, the largest element. In the unarmed air force, with some 700 planes, performs a transport service for oil branches of the government. Another military branch with civil type planes is the Army Engineer Corps, which uses small craft to inspection work.
