  • Description

    The McDonnell-Douglas F-15, a new fighter aircraft developed for the US Air Force, had its first flight over southern California on Thursday (July 27). The aircraft is capable of 1,400mph (2253 kms) but, on this occasion the pilot kept it down to less than a quarter of maximum speed. Meanwhile, in Downey, California, there has been a happy reaction to news that North American Rockwell's space company would be the prime contractor for the American Space shuttle craft. Happy workers drank to celebrate and hundreds who had bene laid off by the factory earlier showed up at the plant to see if they would be rehired.
