GIVEN UP BY CANADA Canada abandoned a similar search years ago, regarding i as futile in face of the insistence by each contending faction that it is the sole legitimate repre sentative of the Chinese people Belgium conspicuously failec I to change its position to one o :K unconditional support of Peking as a number of states changec theirs, after Canada recognizey restraint. It was little more Lhan a brush in the cold war. Jut it won a coveted award for airmanship, two unit citations, and heightened self-respect against an enemy sometimes friendly, sometimes not so. Not a shot was fired, not a life was lost in this strange confron- tation. It was, after all, only a show of tile flag, to prove it was still there. It was performed vith economy and dispatch by men who tend to reason why, even when they do and dare. Through October of 1970, the 57th had 530 scrambles. 347 in- tercepts of Soviet aircraft. It began with a sudden surge in Soviet activity, part of Opera- tion Oceans, the most extensive military exercise in history, a multi-ocean Russian effort wilh more than 150 ships and fleets of planes. It ended with a Soviet rescue effort for one of its air- craft lost in the lethal waters of Hie North Atlantic, a plane down en route to earthquake- stricken Peru with relief sup- plies. SPOUT AIRCRAFT The crush began in early April with Iceland's northern days lengthening. A Russian Bear aircraft, a tong-range, four-motored reconnaissance transport, encroached on the Norwegian radar screens bound over the polar ice between Ice- land and Scandinavia. Radar tracks Soviet aircraft when they take off from airfields near Murmansk Two or the 57th's F-102 Delta Daggars roared off to meet the intruder. It was a nighttime in- tercept at feet. The next day there were four. The next day four more, then seven. The pace was accelerating. The ae- rial fleet from northern Russia was moving down on a regular jasis The purpose seemed to Iw electronic surveillance, probing the radar ghMil of the North At- antic Treaty Organization, searching out surface and un- derwater craft, part of the larger Soviet manoeuvres. In the following days the flow continued. The 57th scrambled repeatedly. From the time the Soviet pressure began to build, the1 PUT ON ALEUT 57th went on an emergency basis. All leaves, all training were suspended, the squadron was divided in halt and each section was put on 12-hour alort In normal operation only two planes are on alert. For the pilots, it meant sitting in two alert room, steps away from their planes. And at the bottom of the stairs the wall is padded so when they go crash- ing down in their flight gear they won't get hurt. Icelandic weather is so severe that the 57tn is socned in almost 50 per cent of the time in the worst month, December. Its strength is less than a squad- ron. There's probably some in- ternational politics in it. As one pilot put it: "We like to stress to Icelanders lhat we are here for their defence. We can't kid them because 14 planes couldn't hold off the Red hordes if they wanted to come. It's really our presence that counts." The 57lh provided intelligence on scores of Soviet aircraft dur- ing its four-month interception spree. It encountered more So- viet planes in 1970 than it had in three previous years. It didn't get many headlines. But the U.S. Air Force cited the 57th for "one of the most re- markable records oi achieve- ment ever attained by a fighter interceptor It adds only a little more to the meaning of the 57th's motto. "If we didn't get them, they didn't come." "BLASTED SUN" Duke of Kent squints during a me- dal presentation ceremony in Nicosia.
