And during the four years of such flights, U.S. aircraft carriers in the eastern Mediterranean were always on an alert just short of a wartime footing. Depending on the amount of Soviet air activity, the crewi were on five or 15-minute alerts. In Uie five-minute alert planes were on the deck and crews were in the cockpit in owe radar picked up the Russian aircraft, in the 15- mioote alert the crews were up but could stay to the ready room below deck. The only alert closer to wartime condition Is the one- minute alert in which the crew is in its fighter and the plane sitting on the steam catapult, not hooked up. Since the Ruseians and their reconnaissance pianec been sent home, Ibe twnpo work has relaxed comMerably for the Tht five and 15-minute alerts, have ended, the sources laid.
