  • Description

    Crown Prince Constantine of Greece was exclusively filmed by VISNEWS May 11 aboard the American aircraft carrier USS 'Franklin D. Roosevelt'. The American Sixth Fleet Commander Vice-Admiral C.E.Ekstrom invited the Prince and members of NATO'S Aeronautical Research Advisory Group to watch exercises by the carrier's aircraft.

    After watching an exciting display of "attack" and "defence" manoeuvres, the young prince donned helmet and parachute and flew from the ship to his palace in Athens in one of the carrier's helicopters.

    The exercises preceded a demonstration of medical tele-examination (Telecardiograms etc), during which men in Washington, USA, were 'examined' by Athens doctors. This revolutionary system is based on electro-magnetic waves and will allow scientists to watch the welfare of the Astronauts in Space.

    Excitement over the carrier returned to Phaleron Bay, Athens.
