U.S. Beats Record of Great Britain Officials Report Shore-Based of Supersonic Craft By James Strebig Cleveland United States navy ram-jet engine tests recorded speeds in excess ol miles an hour, officials who could not be named acknowledged today to commenting on British estimates that one of their engines reached miles an hour In a drop test. If the British plane represents their highest achievement to they arc behind both the navy and the National Advisory lor Aeronautics, which now has under way an extensive drop test program with ram-Jet engines, with speeds expected to reach up to miles an hour. In its only test thus far, using least powerful of the several of ram-jet engines built or de- signed for the purpose, the NjV-C-A. hit a measured speed of nearly one and one-half times the speed of sound, or just over 1.000 miles an hour. launched From Shore Another test with a somewhat more powerful modification ol game engine Is scheduled shortly at its testing station north of the Virginia Capes, with aa expected speed of miles an hour. More powerful engines of same over-all diameter are being readied for subsequent tests, with, expected speeds ot to 2.000 miles an hour. This particular type engine taken to altitudes of around six miles under. the belly of a B-29 dropped into the Atlantic ocean. The navy's tests, which have been under tor at least two axe- more spectacular la -tlwt engine launched from shore by having attached to it four huge rocket. motors. These bring the engine up to the speea necessary to provide the ram ef- fect, which enables the engine to fly by Itself. This project has been known aj the "bumble bee." Both the navy and the N.A.C.A- get actual In-flight recordings from their high-speed missiles by means of telemetering, the automatic radio reporting to ground stations of the recording instruments In the missile. These records also checked by radar measurements. A ram-jet engine has no movinK parts, except Itself. The compres- sion of air needed to burn fuel attained by the engine's own for- ward speed. Because of that. It cannot operate below 400 miles hour. For economic operation a considerably higher speed Is desir- able. The faster the movement, the more efficient the engine. Piloted Craft Speed Lower Another limitation of the nun-jet Is It must stay with- in the range of the earth's atmos- phere. The higher It goes, the higher Its speed must be to obtain the needed volume of oxygen. Engineers arc not willing to pre- dict any early achievement or supersonic speed In piloted aircraft, the simple fact being that nothing properly described as an aircraft has yet exceeded the speed of sound in flight. The-tests in this country as well as the ones in England are more properly described as being "missile" experiments, since they do- not involve the use of aerodynamics to obtain lift. The speed of sound normally Is considered 760 miles an hour, but this varies 100 miles an hour in both directions' with change in temperature. Speed Also Reported Copyright, 1047. The Detroit Cleveland American robot rocket planes have crashed sonic barrier at blistering speeds In the neighborhood of miles an hour, a high government official revealed today. The flights have been carried on for months from a lonely island off the Virginia coast, where the National Advisory Commlttoe for Aeronautics (N_A.C-A.) has a small experimental station.
