LOS ANGELES, Dec. ll. <JF>— A tiny plane with which the army air forces and Bell Aircraft Corp its maker, expect to delve into the uncharted realm of supersonic speed, has successfully completed its first tests. The XS-1, with 23-year-old Pilot Chalmers (Slick) Goodlin. New Alexandria. Pa., at thecon- iSi VVas CU1 loose fropi the belly of a B-29 bomber over Muroc Army Air Base Monday. Second after America’s first rocket-propelled plane dropped away from the big bomber Goodie f,UTe<i? ?n the P°wcr. and the craft darted away with a momentum which the former navy pilot compared to the thrust from a catapult aboard a carrier. •£ne D!ane is desi*ned to fly at .700 miles an hour, but Goodlin made no attempt to step it up that high. He loafed along at a mere 550, using first one cylinder. then two, and finally—for only a few seconds—all four. pIane was cut loose at 25,000 feet. Goodlin climbed under his own power to 35.000, meantime diving, banking and climbing. He flew for 19 minutes, not quite seven under power, and made a perfect landing with his fuelless engine idle. The plane’s power is measured in terms of thrust, rather than horsepower. But R. M. Stanley, Li ic, Okla., Bell’s chief engine-cr. ar}d designer on the plane, said by the only available means of comparison, the engine could be said to develop 30,000 horsepower. It burns ethyl alcohol, oxidized by liquid oxygen. The engine is unbelievably small to generate such a tremendous thrust. Without fuel it weighs only 210 pounds, and its overall length is 56 inches. The plane itself is smaller than the average fighter, measuring 31 feet from tail to tip, with a wing span of only 28 feet. Army authorities emphasized at a press conference that the plane, of almost conventional design, was not designed as a fighter a bomber or any other cspe-cial type of crafy Its mission is purely and specifically to permit investigation of the supersonic speed ranges.
