Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, November 28, 1970 TUB LETHBRIBCB HCKALD Need for look at Arctic development plans urged EDMONTON (CP) Effects ol development on Iho Arctic environment must be deter- mined in advance it man is to take resources from the north without unnecessary damage, E. A, Hemstock said today. "The need now is to look at the long-term plans for the Arctic, to define what new problems there will be next year, In the next 10 years, and in the nest 30 Mr, Hranstock, Arctic co-Ortlinator for Imperial Oil Ltd., told a meeting of the As- sociation o! Professional Engi- neers, Geologists and Geo- physieists of Alberta. A start can be made, he said, by setting aside land for Na- tional Parks and planning to incorporate pipe lines, gas lines, highways and communi- cation links in one transporta- tion corridor. Abo, methods of cleaning up accidental oil spills and minimizing their effects should be examined, "Academic, government and IN CALGARY STAY AT THE ATLANTA MOTtt WHERE YOU ARE A STRANGER ONtY ONCBI 0 45 Modern and Deluxa Unils Bridal Suits Freo TV and ICQ Dial Phones In all units Minutes from Downtown- Shopping Stampeda Grounds Moderate Rates Phone 243-4651 3630 MACLEOD TRAIL industrial personnel will bo able to co-operate more useful- ly if each group is aware of the other's problems and ca- pabilities. This may be accom- plished by summer courses, given in the north and cover- ing the whole gamut of Arctic science." Sir. Hemstock said that it has been suggested that, the University of Alberta give such a course at Irmvik, N.W.T., next year. He also said that if Cana- dians want to continue using packaged goods, and growing foods or producing minerals, they must accept some environ- mental disturbance. "Canadians must decide wliat their priorities are and what balance they really want between nature and technology. What WE must do is stop un- necessary damage and develop methods .and procedures that prevent most serious acci- dents and will lessen the im- pact of any that do occur."

Gel out of Ufa Take Ifie family io a movie Co-pilot lacked confidence in his own ability TORONTO (CP) A federal inquiry was loki Friday that Donald Rowland, co-pilot oC an Ah- Canada jetliner that crashed here July 5 killing all 109 per- sons aboard, "learned proce- dures slowly and lacked confi- dence" in his own ability. First Officer Rowland was on the flight deck of California Gal- axy Flight Ii21 which smashed nose-first into a farmer's Held three minutes after bouncing off a runway at Toronto Interna- tional Ail-port. The aircraft Ml the runway seconds after the ground-spoiler braking system First Officer Rowland was operating was prematurely deployed while the DC-SMB passenger jet was still airborne. Assessments of the first offi- cer's flying capabilities and per- sonality traits prepared by Air Canada examiners during the last six years were read into the inquiry record. At Thursday's session, a tran- script of what was said in the cockpit by First Officer Row- land, Second Officer Harry Hill and the pilot, Captain Peter Hamilton, during the last 12 minutes of Flight C21 was en- tered as evidence. In the three minutes between impact on the airport runway from a height of 60 feet and the final crash, First Officer Row- land apologizedto Captain Hamilton three times. Friday, reports on all three officers prepared by Air Canada supervisors were introduced by Allan Clark, a federal transport department operations special- ist. Mr. Clark backgrounded the voice recorder transcript with interpretations of t e c li n i c a 1 phrases the three men used and their personal flying and train- hig histories. Of First Officer Rowland, the reports said: "He'learned procedures slowly and lacked confidence knowledge aerage very stow to learn considered satisfactory, but further im- provements required. However, one Air Canada ex- aminer said in the fall of 1967 that First Officer Rowland had shown "satisfactory potential to become an Ah- Canada cap- tain." OFFICIAL DOUBTFUL But in July, 1968, Captain G. K. Edwards, assistant general manager of Air Canada's flight operations, wrote into Birst Offi- cer Rowland's record: "Ex- tremely doubtful captain mate- rial." Captain Edwards' assess- ment, explained Mr. Clark, went on to point out a number ot minor errors the co-pitot had made on flights from Montreal to London. Mr. Clark said the errors were all of a minor nature and in no way involved actual flying of the aircraft. Tha last entry in First Officer Rowland's record, on Nov. 13, said he had at- tained "a very good standard" as a first officer. Mr. Clark said there was notlu'ng in Second Officer Hill's record indicating anything other than that he was thoroughly competent to act as a second of- ficer. He made similar observations about Captain Hamilton with one major veteran pilot had deep reservations about the methods Air Canada used to deploy spoiler system. the ground Tho spoilers ore 88.8 square feet of steel panel placed along the wings. On landing, the pan- els rise from the upper wing sin-face to slow and steady (to aircraft. The Air Canada manual says the spoilers should be armed at feet during the final ap- proach, meaning they would de- ploy automatically the minute the jet's wheels touched the run- way. Tho spoilers also can be acti- vated manually, tlrough opera- lion of a lever to the cockpit. Caplaia Hamilton preferred to have the spoilers deployed man- ually by his co-pilot once the eircraft had touched down on the runway. In conversations with other Air Canada pilots and officers, Captain Hamilton indicated a strong distrust for tho auto- matic deployment system. Mr. Clark introduced state- ments from several officers who had flown with Captain Hamil- ton during the six months be- VOICES HEARD AT INQUIRY A transcript of what was said In the cockpit In final minutes of California Galaxie Flight 62} before It crashed July 5, killing 109 per- sons aboard, was read into the record of a federal inquiry in Toronto.

(CP) It is tinf air and unrealistic to blame the mass media for all of soci- ety's ills, Senator Keith Davey said here. Sen. Davey, chairman of the special Senate committee on the mass media, told the Sarnia University Women's Club, "The press is so available and imme- diate it offers an instant target tor those people no longer can distinguish between the un- usual and the.usual, the topical and tte typical, and that means more and more people." Sen, Davey said the so-called silent majority is the biggest threat to the freedom of the press because it cannot differen- tiate between those who consti- tute a challenge to society or those who present it. Sen. Davey said his commit- tee's report on the mass media would be tabled before Christ- mas. OLD FISH The sea-run Arctic char may reach an age of 23 and a weight of IS pounds.

Captain Hamil- ton feared tlw spoilers would deploy themselves accidentally in the air if armed at feet. BLAMED FOB CliASIl Mr. Clark said the pilot blamed the ground spoiler sys- tem for the crash of a CP Air DC-I) in Tokyo Bay in 1904. Commission counsel B. J. MacKinnon said Captain Hamil- ton's beliefs "may have been quiUj erroneous" regarding the CP Air crash, which killed M persons, "but it was a genuine belief on his part." When Captain Hamilton was flying as co-piiot, which hap- pened a number of times during tho last six months, he would arm the spoilers at feet as spelled out in the manual. The alternate system his co- pilots used when he was flying was that the spoilers would Ire armed from 200 to 800 feet above the ground. In the case of Flight 621, the spoilers were fully deployed, rather than just nrmcd, about CO feet above the runway, Tho big stretch jet lost Us lift capa- bility in two-fiftljs of a second, dropped to tbe runway and lost its outer right engine. It was enroute to Los Angeles from Montreal silh a short stop here. Captain Hamilton gunned aircraft back into tho air in an attempt to circle for another ap- proach. However, threo explo- sions blew off tte inner right engine and big chunks oC right wing. The aircraft plunged nose first into a farmer's field at speed of 220 knots. The inquiry continues.
