Page 4 College Station, Texas Tuesday, May 3, 1966 THE BATTALION Air Force Sophomores Tour Georgia Aircraft Installation ■ By ROBERT SOLOVEY Battalion Staff Writer The sight of “a ship with wings,” a . mock-up of the planned C5A transport plane, highlighted a recent tour of the Lockheed-Georgia Co. by eleven Air Force cadets. Cadets included Dennis S. Bailey, Rodger L. Collins, Jimmy L. Daniel, Howard Kaffenburger, Richard A. Pazderski, Kenneth W. Pollard, Samuel Smith, Rob ert J. Solovey, James Stutler, Leon E. Travis III, and Burl E. Glass III. The Air Force-ordered C5A air craft will be the world’s largest transport when it is delivered in June, 1969. BOTH IN SIZE and cargo life capability, it will more than double any aircraft in present operation. Leaving Easterwood Airport last week, the C-47 “Gooneybird” was piloted by Lt. Col. Philip B. Hopkins and Capt. Deward John son, who literally “played the weather by ear.” The officers brought the plane through a narrow air lane, with thunderhowers on either side, to land safely at Dobbins AFB, Ga. Lockheed is an integral part of the base, which houses both Air Force and Naval aircraft and is the testing and delivery point for Lockheed-Gcorgia built planes. The cadets received a special tour of plant facilities and brief ings by Lockheed’s top executives, planned by the Lockheed Cus tomer Relations division and Lt. Col. Thomas Hines. Personally guided throughout the day by Director of Customer Relations John Foss, the ROTC sophomores were briefed on Lock heed’s production aircraft. The capabilities of Lockheed’s C-140 Jetstar, C-130 Hercules, vertical takeoff aircraft (VTOL), the C-141 Starlifter and the C5A transport were all described and supplemented by slides and films. The $1.7 million Jetstar is a nine passenger, 550 miles per hour, 2,250 mile range plane. ITS BEST potential appears to be for large corporations, but Lockheed is also negotiating with the Army and the Air Force. The C-130 Hercules is best known for its capability to land on any terrain. It can lift 17 tons of cargo about 500 miles and land with only 1,500 feet of runway. The C-130 has been the work horse for the Air Force in the past and in the future it will be used even more when the giant cargo loads of the C5A are broken down into more usable quantities. A program is under way to build a C-130J, which could land in a foot of mud, a field with 10 inch high bumps or holes or land on skis for Antarctic opera tions. IT CAN take off in 600 feet of runway, which makes it un paralleled for forward combat supply, such as on the front lines in Viet Nam. The VTOL aircraft is under development with tight security. The plane is able to hover as a helicopter or fly forward by changing the angle of its wings while in flight. VTOL has experienced several problems which has kept the cost of operation high and also kept it out of the current Air Force inventory. Numerous power plants and various arrangements have been tried but VTOL aircraft are still unstable and difficult to ma neuver. Present engines take up so much space there is little room left for cargo and so it remains virtually useless as a transport system at this time. The C-141 is the Air Force’s best transport to date, and the Air Force had a ceremony at Lockheed to celebrate the 100th such aircraft to be delivered. Similar in appearance to a commercial jet airliner, it has doubled the capacity of the C-130. The cadets also toured several ultramodern buildings housing Lockheed’s research and develop ment center. AEROSPACE and mechanical engineers design aircraft by using highly sophisticated com puter equipment. The plan for a part is drawn electronically on an oscilloscope screen and the shape is fed into a computer. The machines which produce the part are run by computer tape. It takes hundreds of men less, requires fewer hours, and is ex tremely accurate. After touring the flight line and eating lunch, the cadets were shown the aircraft assembly line. From walkways high above the floor, cadets saw a room 2,500 feet long and 1,200 feet wide, the largest building of its type in the world. Some aircraft were nothing but steel skeletons, without wings, engines, wheels or instrumenta tion. Thousands of wires, bolts and tons of metal are fitted together with extreme accuracy. One C-141 is completed every three days. Later, on the main floor, the cadets boarded almost completed aircraft to watch some of the actual construction. The Aggies were surprised to find many women working in the plant. Women normally wire the plane’s electrical system. The our ended when cadets were shown the mock-up of the C5A transport. The plane is being built of wood to establish its actual ap pearance. THE PLANE is 242 feet long and 63 feet high, with a wing span of 222 feet. The landing gear includes 28 wheels to support a mission weight of more than 375 tons. It will carry 49,000 gallons of jet fuel. The C5A will be able to trans port 110 tons of cargo, 80 passengers and 12 crew members up to 5,500 miles. One cadet termed it the “Noah’s Ark of the Air,” and even the officers jokingly bet it would never fly. Foss assured them it would, and said it was just a “baby” compared to designs for later transports. Equipped for commercial air lines, the C5A could carry 900 passengers. The roof of the building will not be high enough when con struction starts on the C5A, and Foss said a movable building will be added to the outside of the building. The plane will be built back wards so the tail assembly can be added last. On the return trip to A&M, each cadet was given an oppor tunity to fly the C-47 while John son explained the instrumenta tion. Hines had complete faith in the cadets . . . and tightened his seat belt.
