Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 1, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuoitfoy, December I, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE W.MO 17 Other planes use system forbidden by Air Canada TORONTO (CP) A federal transport department investiga- tor said Monday that two wide- 1 y -u s e d commercial airliners employ the ground braking sys- tem that Air Canada forbids for its DC-8 jetliner fleet. Allan Clark, an operations specialist, was testifying at a federal inquiry into the July 5 crash of an Air Canada DC-8-03 passenger jet north of Toronto International Airport, which killed all 109 persons aboard. Mr. Clark identified the jet aircraft using the system forbid- den for DC-8S by Air Canada as the Boeing 707, built by the Boeing Co. in Seattle, Wash., and the new British Vickers VC-10. The crash here has been at- tributed to premature deploy- ment of the California-bound jet's ground spoiler system- steel panels that are deployed from the upper surfaces of both wings to slow and steady a landing aircraft. The spoilers on DC-8s are gen- erally armed in the air to de- ploy automatically the instant the aircraft touches down on the runway. In the case of Flight 621, en- route to Los Angeles from Mont- real with a short stop here, the spoilers were deployed fully while the elongated jetliner was still 60 feet above the runway. The jet dropped to the run- way surface, lost an engine and crashed three minutes after taking off again when explo- sions ripped the right wing as it tried to circle for another landing approach. The inquiry was told last week that Captain Peter Ham- ilton, pilot of Flight 621, pre- ferred manual deployment by means of a lever system in the cockpit after the aircraft had landed. But Uie Air Canada flight manual says the spoilers on a DC-8 must be armed for deploy- ment while the aircraft is still feet up for automatic ex- tension on touchdown. Mr. Clark testified that Cap- tain Hamilton regarded the Air Canada procedure as danger- ous, because of the possibility of premature deployment duo to mechanical or electrical fail- ure. He testified previously that the spoilers were manually de- ployed prematurely in the air by First Officer Ronald Row- land, co-pilot aboard Flight 621. First Officer Rowland, he said, preferred operating by the book. WORKED OUT COMPROMISE On the morning of July 5, the two men apparently worked out a compromise Hie spoilers would be armed when the jet was about 8 feet above the run- way coming in to land. Instead of arming them, First Officer Rowland deployed them. Mr. Clark said the spoiler sys- tems built into the Boeing 707 and the Vickers VC-10 allow only manual deployment once the plane has set down on the runway the system Captain Hamilton preferred. The spoilers on the two types of aircraft cannot be activated automatically or armed in the air. As the inquiry entered its sec- ond week Monday, testimony centred on tie intricate work- ings of the spoiler system. Mr. End to federal regime predicted MONTREAL (CP) "I have the impression that when histo- rians come to write about the final stages of the federal re- gime, they will put the real be- ginning of the end around Octo- ber or November Rene Levesque, leader of the Parti Quebecois, said here. "What we are Mr. Levesque told more than supporters at a Montreal re- gional conference, "is more and more evidence that the legiti- macy of Ibis regime is coming to an end in the eyes of one of the two peoples that live within it. "For a regime to have legiti- macy, it must in practice be ac- cepted by a consensus of at least 90 or 95 per cent of the people, and this acceptance has lasted in one way or another for decades. "But now one third of the French people of Quebec have already rejected he said, "and with each shock that hits our society you can feel entire chunks of the population break- ing away from the regime." SEES DRASTIC CHANGES Mr. Levesque described the last, several weeks as the period "between a calculated and sys- tematic attempt to keep Quebec in a state of hysteria, and the awful mess the regime finds it- self a few weeks later." "Things are going to change drastically and the only ques- Political killing GAZA CITY (AP) An Arab member of the Gaza police force was taken to a nearby cit- rus grove by unidentified men and shot to death, the Israelis reported Monday. The killing was listed as "political." So far there have been 65 murders in the Israeli-occupied Gaza Strip this year. tion is whether it will be by democratic means or by an- archy." He described the Parti Quebe- cois as the only way to provide a comprehensive, democratic answer to Quebec's problems. "We have to prepare our- selves very seriously, for the mandate of the current govern- ment is politically and morally f i n i s h e d." The question of Quebec independence was "only a problem of decision" not one of economics, language or social change. Pope Paul hits problem on prayer MANILA (AP) How does the Pope say a prayer with Moslems and a Buddhist monk? He doesn't. The dilemma presented itself to Pope Paul in Manila Sunday in an unusual ecumenical en- counter, first with Protestants, then with non-Christians of the two Asian regions. The pontiff said an Our Father with the Protestants. Then, after exchanging greet- ings with a group of Moslems and the Buddhist, the Pope sug- gested that they, too, pray to- gether. Quick consultation convinced them that there was no prayer to provide a common denomi- nator for the three religions. So the pontiff asked all to observe a half-minute of silence. They did.

Preparation Clark told Mr. Justice Hugh Gibson of the Exchequer Court of Canada, inquiry commission- er, that three incidents involv- ing premature deployment of spoilers were reported by Air Canada flight crews in the months preceding the crash here. AH three involved deployment in (lie air, but none of the inci- dents resulted in a crash. One occurred as a jet was coming in to land at Kingston, Jamaica, in February, 1969. NO DETAILS GIVEN Mr. Clark didn't go into detail on any of the incidents and didn't say where or when the other two occurred. All three were reported by the captains or first officers in- volved to senior Air Canada flight personnel, but apparently did not go up any higher than the middle echelons of manage- ment. Mr. Clark said one Air Can- ada flight instructor told of an incident by a pilot "made some attempts" to advise sen- ior executives "hut for somo reason was unable to do so." The inquiry is expected to end late this week. Slill to be heard from is the key "human factors" investigating team, which looked into the persona] background of flight 621's flight deck crew in ttie weeks that followed the crash. Female auto mechanics Ottawa offers new bond issue no FAIR VIEW (CP) Alex Palin, principal of the Fairview Agricllural and Voacational Col- lege, yesterday asked garage employers in the Peace River area if they would like to hire female mechanics Mr. Palin said that in recent weeks, some female high school students have asked if they could enroll in the college's mechanics course. I He said he has no objection j to young women taking such a course, but wondered if they would be able to obtain employ- ment in the field. He said women would be bet- ter suited than men for some types of mechanics, especially fine detail work such as car- buretors.

Real Santa Clans believer way to bank LOS ANGELES (AP) Dick Westermann is 55 and still believes in Santa Claus. And with good reason. Santa was good to him last year; is nothing to ho-ho-ho at. That's the estimate of his gross profits for Christmas past from the stocky 210- pound president of the Nortb Pole Santa Co., a Lymvood firm now in its 22nd year of supplying stand-in Santas for both home and commerce. This year Westermann has 112 bewhiskered men in red suits on the Yuletide hustings bringing joy and cheer to tod- dlers in 75 stores, 17 shopping malls and about 25 Christmas parties already booked. They earn an average of a week during a four-week pe- riod. The majority of his men are retirees picking up extra money, but for others, the business of being Santa this year is laid- off employees from the area's ailing aircraft industry. Westermann's Santas are carefully screened, checked, bonded and imbued with one basic principle: Don't promise anything. Or drink. Wester- mann fines ar.y Santa caught, drinking before or during even bringing liquor with bun to The fine is donated to the Boy's Club nearest the home of the tot offended.
