    Background: NARRATION DULLES INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT OUTSIDE OF WASHINGTON D.C. IS PLAYING HOST TO TRANSPO ???-TWO, A NINE DAY INDUSTRIAL EXPOSITION DESIGNED TO SHOW HOW MAN AND MATERIAL CAN BE MOVED IN THE AIR, ON LAND, ON SEA AND UNDER THE SEA. MORE THAN ONE AND HALF MILLION PEOPLE ARE EXPECTED TO VISIT TRANSPO - BILLED AS THE WORD'S LARGEST INDUSTRIAL EXHIBITION -- TO LOOK AT AND RIDE ON PEOPLE-MOVING CONVEYOR BELTS, TURBO TRAINS, HELICOPTERS, AND JET PASSENGER PLANES. ONE OF THE NEWEST AIRLINERS TO GO INTO SERVICE, THE LOCKHEED L-TEN-ELEVEN TRISTAR, WILL BE ONE OF SCORES OF COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT ON DISPLAY. THE THREE-ENGINE JET, SHOWN HERE CARRYING THE COLOURS OF EASTERN AIRLINES, IS CAPABLE OF HANDLING UP TO FOUR-HUNDRED PASSENGERS IN QUIET FLIGHT AT SPEEDS OF ABOUT SIX-HUNDRED MILES AN HOUR. THE WIDEBODIED PLANE HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO MEET THE INCREASING AIR TRAFFIC DEMANDS OF THE 1970s AND BEYOND, WITH A SPECIAL CONCERN TO NOISE LEVELS. IT IS ALSO THE MOST SOPHISTICATED IN TERMS OF AVIONIC -- AUTOMATIC FLIGHT SYSTEMS. LOCKHEED BOARD CHAIRMAN DANIEL HOUGHTON SAID THE TRISTAR FLEW TO DULIES AIRPORT AND TRANSPO FROM CALIFORNIA WITHOUT THE PILOT ONCE TOUCHING THE CONTROL COLUMN OF THE BIG PLANE.

    THIS IS HOW THE L-TEN-ELEVEN LOOKED FROM THE COCKPIT COMING IN FOR A LANDING AT DULLES...THE PILOT DESCRIBES THE ACTION.
