I YOU 5AID A MOUTHFUL Perhaps Nojpnja, o five-year-old orangutan al a zoo In London is trying to tell us something or maybe he's merely reflecting on the boredom of confinement. Supersonic secrets sale magnified says official LONDON (CP) A Scotland Yard source said here claims by a former British Air- craft Corportion engineer that he sold secrets about the super- sonic Concorde airliner to agents for "are exaggerated." The informant said state- ments made by James Doyle. 48, have been fully investigated and no reason was found to pre- fer charges against him. Doyle told reporters that secu- rity at the plant in Bristol, Eng- land, where the British verson of the Concorde was developed "was a joke" and that he could have walked oul of the plant with almost anything he wanted. He maintained that the Rus- sians paid him for Con- corde secrets but he balked when the KGB asked him to steal a missile as well. "I don't mind taking docu- ments out but I would have had to account for a missing mis- Doyle said. Nevertheless he claimed that 11 would have been easy to transport the missile out of the factory at Bristol because no one would stop him at the west gate. "We had a house about 400 yards from the factory ear- marked and would have hidden the missile in the back garden." GUARDS LEFT KEYS Dojle, who lives in Bristol, said he used to buy drinks for the factory security men. They would leave keys for him at the main gate so that he could get into the factory's top-security sections. "11 was open house. I used to go in and take what I wanted. You could walk out with a brief- case bulging with anything you wanted." He claimed that he started spying for the Russians in Janu- ary, 1969, after a Soviet trade delegation official got in touch with him. He said he went to London every second Friday with secret documents and was wined and dined by the Rus- sians. Once he tooka KGB man Into the Concorde hangar and intro- duced him to security men at the plant as a friend from Ham- burg. He said the Russian made sketches of the Concorde cock- pit and tock notes. Doyle now is a burglar alarm worker. He left BAG in February, 1970. TOOK NO ACTION A BAG spokesman said tie whole matter was investigated by Scotland Yard's special branch months ago and no ac- tion was taken. While Scotland Yard dis- missed Doyle's statements as insignificant, the London Evening News said Doyle's "wild" statements were at first ignored by the special branch but that they now are being taken seriously in the light of the recent defection of a senior KGB officer and Britain's purge of 105 Soviet officials. Tlie paper said that detectives have mounted Operation Flush- out at BAG, seeking more Brit- ish "collaborators." A number of commentators have noted the amazing similar- ity between the Concorde and the Soviet Union's TU-144. Both have similar design contours leading to speculation that the Russians gained information on original British-French designs on which to base their own plan- ning.
