    Background: Exclusive shots of King Hussein of Jordan at the controls of a Handley Page Dart Herald turboprop aircraft were taken at Radlett airport in Hertfordshire, UK, DEC 4.

    At present on a private visit to Britain, King Hussein was received at the airport by leading Handley Page representatives. He took the aircraft up twice, circling above Radlett, and was greatly impressed by its performance.

    The Dart Herald has been ordered by British European Airways for their Scottish service where quick take-off is essential because of short runways. It was in one of these planes that Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco flew to London from Nice, Dec 3.
