    Background: A CONVERTED FOUR-ENGINED AIRLINE EQUIPPED WITH RADAR PLOTTING GEAR WHICH WILL TRACK THE FLIGHT OF NEW FRENCH MISSILES, FLEW ON FINAL PROVING FLIGHTS TODAY (MONDAY).

    THE AIRCRAFT WAS A FOUR-ENGINED PROPELLER DRIVEN DC-7 WHICH HAS BEEN PACKED WITH A RADIO AND RADAR GEAR. WHEN FRANCE UNDERTAKES TESTS OF HER LONG-RANGE MISSILES, AIRCRAFT SUCH AS THIS WILL CIRCLE THE TARGET AREA IN THE ATLANTIC OCEAN AND PLOT THE FINAL COURSE OF THE ROCKETS.

    THE NEW MISSILES WILL HAVE A RANGE OF 2,500 KILOMETRES AND WILL BE FIRED IN THE DIRECTION OF THE AZORES.

    IN TESTING THEM, THE TRACKING EQUIPMENT OF THE SLOW-MOVING PROPELLER AIRCRAFT WILL BE INVALUABLE IN CHECKING THE DIRECTION AND BEHAVIOUR OF THE MISSILES.
