BY MINOTT SADNDKRS NBA Service Writer PARIS—Grotesque airplanes llhi nun-made comets, roaring nt illzzj speeds through the HlHc know: regions ten miles above the globe— Six-hcur trips from Pnris or Her lin to 'New York— Flying, winged "submarines," with dating pilots locket! In hermetically staled cabins— It's jolng to b? a spectacular trans-Atlanta flying season, II plans ol European aeronautical engineers don't go. :uvry| • For a ; three-cornered—or perhaps a< fcur, five or six-cornered —international race through the ttratosplwre is In the making, will almost every capital in Eiirojx; ketmlngly harboring a "mystery rOane" dare the rare up- pfr atmosphere. • Many of the planes arc shrouded In secrecy which permits ""t ever the names of their builders or pilots to be known. . Other constructors, like the rivals Parinan *hd Guerchais in Purls and iin- bther airplane manufacturer In Qermany, have partially revealed their plans. Parman and Gucrchals arc each speeding^ up final preparations In the ambition to be Ihc first to conquer the stratosphere. Already built,' In Berlin, is another plane ^with a hermetically sealed cockpit, oxygen-supply chambers, ah 82- loot wlngspread and ti crude oil motor—and it's said to be capable 6( flying -700 miles an hour at an altitude of ten miles. • The two planes now nearlng completion In Pnris are similar in piinciple. They are monoplanes with exaggerated wing spans. The most unusual feature, however, is & sealed submarine-like cabin built of metal and strong enough to prevent it from bursting' outwards from the air within while the plane Is riding In the thin stratospheric, element. Hifh Speed tattMe .The Querchals machine has a wing 55 feet In sprrad and thick 'in construction, with the bracing In the interior.'It has a 700 horsepower Lorraine riotor and, under Guerchais' calculations, should be able to fly at • 50,000 feet at 300 iniles an hour. The 'sealed 'cabin in the Guer- ci.ais machine Is It lit of duralu- min, like that used by Professor Auguste PIccard In his balloon flight. It will "house the motor and two pilots, and will also contain highly sensitive' instruments for scipfltlfic" observations and safe flying when nothing can be seen. An '"EJecrb-Mecanlque". compressor, subject to regulation Irom the cockpit,' will be' started, according to plans, it about 20,000 feet altitude and Ited the engine as well is the men.' Ufe ill - this cabin during flight •will be much tho same as that in a submarine, with oxygen tanks and a system for the absorbtion of carbon gases. . Plane B»i!t in Secret Henri Parman, pioneer aviator and one ot the foremost constructors in France, is zealously guarding the secrets of" his stratosphere machine. It outwardly resembles .the famous Farman type of commercial machine, but has n wingspread of nearly 60 feet. The airtight compartment is surmounted by five heavy radiators, three for air, one for oil and one for water. It will be driven by a 500 horsepower motor and the apparatus In the cabin will pump 60. litres of warm air n minute. The plane Is heavily constructed, but it Is cstl- nutcd that It should mnk e between *00 and 500 miles an hour in the rarified air of the stratosphere. Both Guarchais and Farman will use a propeller with a variable piteh, or angle of attack on the air, which may be changed by the pilot during flight. Work on tho Farmah stratosphere plane has been going on for four years. "We shall not attempt, anythin" sensational at first." Farman said. The machine, .\vblch should be ready In about two months, will «* flown first at low altitudes und then higher by gradual stages ' , . To Seek New Altil^es • w e do not know what we shall TO, out we hope for much. It may at. considered as certain that the JJUtudes of from 50,000 to 60,000 leet which machines of the pres ent may reach will in time imtly surpassed. Traoretieally, we ought to I?7v T ?T--'•«*• The rariflratlon ol the air should, In theory, permit normal speed to be doubled above 30,000 feet and quadrupled above 60.060 feet, but this is not exactly true.. TO reach great altitudes !?. sh *" n«ve to put on weight and this win cut down speed." It is no secret, however, that Fsrman engineers figure that a normal speed at 120 miles an hour *houW develop into 600 an hour »t from 70,000 to 90,000 feet si- Sead Courier Mows Want Adi. be . basls> a srao _ JP-Vre »frpf»M should fly from Paris to New York in six hours EAST GRINSTEAD, England, (U .
