Much favourable comment Bas been heard by citizens of the City for the efficient work of the fire department in decorating the tank for the holidays. To reih4 ate Hale Asheville.

Among these tests were some we hich dealt with the question Quot can an air plane bomb a tank Quot in practice direct hits were made by the air plane. This was done by diving toward the tank before dropping the bomb. Present Day tanks move fairly fast some of them having the Power to travel about a mile a minute. This makes the problem of hitting them harder than if they stood still. Even a Large sized tank seems rather Small from a height of several Hundred feet. If it did not move it still would be a Small target. Diving attacks can be made in War but they mean great danger to aviators. Anti aircraft guns Are Likely to destroy the planes before they finish their dives. Another thing to remember is that something May happen to the Pilot while he is Quot pulling out Quot of a dive. His mind May go Blank for a second or for Many seconds. The Quot blackout Quot of a pilots mind. As it is called is Likely to take place after a Quick turn at a Speed of. Say 300 or 400 Miles an hour. The turn makes a Man s blood push toward one Side. That is toward the outside of the circles he is making. If the pilots body sways so his j head is toward the inside of the i Circle his feet Are toward the outside and blood rushes into his j legs. With the Rush of blood j away from the head there is danger of a blackout. It is not Likely to last More than half a minute at 3d0 Miles an hour a plane travels two and a half Miles in half a minute if an aviator leaned toward the outside of the Circle the blood would Rush toward the head and would bring even worse results. He might have a blackout lasting for hours if he lived that Long because of the danger of Blaek outs in High Speed turns some persons might fear High Speed air travel. Tests however have shown there is no danger just in Speed. In Ordinary flying with no Sharp turns the plane can sip through the air at 300 or 400 Miles an hour without harm provided the plane dropping Dummy bomb of a tank in practice. Speed is increased bit by bit. No suddenly.
