a prototype or experi mental model actually would be built and ready for Development of a new plane normally takes a number of years The shielding problem for nuclear airplanes has been solved We know how to de sign effective airborne shields to predict their per Wilson said a nuclear air plane would not necessarily be any larger than the current B52 heavy jet bomber It also will be designed to operate off the same runway length as the He said a bomber would be able to cruise any where in the world and would be capable of launching long range ballistic missiles as well as handling nuclear bombs and shortrange mis siles Wilson said two types of nuclear power plants are be ing developed the direct air cycle and the indirect liquid metal cycle In the direct cycle the air flows from the engine intake through the compressor and directly through the reactor where it is heated expanded through the turbine and flows out as a jet stream In the indirect cycle the re actor heats a liquid metal which flows through a closed system The air is heated by passing through a heat ex changer The direct cycle turbojet system is being developed by General Electric Co at Even dale Ohio and at the
