"For many years now, Cana- dian Forces aircraft have heen equipped with altimeters which have been inadequate both be- cause they were difficult to read and interpret and because they w ere relatively representatives of the aerospace industries were told recently by Capt. H. W. fsaac, director of military aerospace combat sys- tems. fn an interview later, he said the old style of altimeter con- sisted of a dial with the num- bers 0 to 9 and three separate pointers to indicate hundreds of feet, thousands and tens of thou- sands. Besides being difficult to read in normal circumstances, it eas- ily could be misinteipreted by a pilot who had become diso- riented. Another hazard was inaccu- cent altimeter error in each of two planes approaching each other at about feet could be disastrous. There is no way to tell how many accidents could have been caused by inaccurate or mis- read altimeters, he said. "How do you tell in an accident when the crew are all Altimeters had been sus- pected as the cause of certain foreign civil aircraft crashes, but there was no fcstimate of the number of Canadian crashes that could have been caused by altimelers. Altimeters on Canadian Forces jets and transport planes were being replaced, at a cost of S4 lo million, with new altimeters easier to read and accurate to within half of one per cent. Similar changes were being made in civilian passen- ger airplanes, although the Ca- nadian Forces were slightly ahead of them. The new altimeters had one pointer to indicate hundreds of feet, while thousands were shown by digits on a drum be- LONDON (CP) British before Foreign Secretary Sir Pnme Inn star Heath is re-i Alec Douglas-Home, ported still anxious to reach a content? of that report settlement with Ilhodesian are still a nu'tter of speculation, SCHOOL SAFETY PATROL WINNERS RECEIVE AWARDS Pictured above holding a cheque fcr is Edward Weise of St. Patrick's School in Lethbridge and Beverly Urhyn of John Davidson School in Coaldale.
