    Airborne-not

    by Chatty Cathy

    It must be summer, there are all these aeronautical incidents to report

    A Douglas DC-8 chartered by the US armed forces and carrying 214 American soldiers heading for South Vietnam, is intercepted in Soviet airspace by MiG-17 fighters who forced it to land at an airfield in the Kurile Islands, where the flight is detained for two days

    A Lockheed Super Constellation carrying medical supplies to Biafra for the Red Cross crashes close to the airstrip in Nigeria, during bad weather.

    A Convair CV-340 belonging to Saudi Arabian Airlines crashes after aborting its third approach at an airport in Saudi Arabia because of poor visibility created by dust; all 11 people on board are killed.

    A Boeing 707 cargo plane of the Belgian airline Sabena hits trees and crashes on approach to Lagos Airport, Nigeria; all seven people on board are killed

    An Aeroflot Antonov An-2, crashes into a 4000-meter mountain near the Soviet Socialist Republic; all 14 people on board are killed.

    In the first hijacking incident attributed to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a Boeing 707, en route from London Heathrow Airport to Lod Airport in Israel, was diverted to Algiers. The Palestinian hijackers holding El Al Flight 426 released the 26 non-Israeli passengers, but there is no word on the fate of any Isrealis found aboard.

    Sir Alec Rose can affirm that it's safer by sea - he's just sailed round the world all by himself. It took him nearly a year...he's entitled to being called "Sir Alec" , now, 'cos the Queen knighted him the next day. Quick reward for slow going, what?

    In the final of the Wimbledon Ladies' Singles tennis competition, Billie-Jean King wins her third title, and a measly £750 .In the final of the Wimbledon Men's Singles tennis competition, Rod Laver wins and collects £2000 in prize money. What were we saying about disparity in men and women's pay?

    The 17th July Revolution takes place in Iraq. Saddam Hussein is appointed Vice Chairman of the Revolutionary Command Council - I hear that Saddam is not a nice man.

    A semiconductor manufacturing company "Intel" is founded by Gordon E. Moore and Robert Noyce. It will integrate electronics within computers, make them go faster, and reduce them in size. One day, in the distant future, according to the techies out there, we'll carry the present mammoths like matchboxes, within purse or pocket.

    The Trudeau era begins

    by Lynn Carroll

    Pierre is just back from an eight day tour of Canada's Arctic. The man is very much an outdoor type, noted for his macho braving of whitewater rafting, and hiking over rough terrain. He claimed that the region had always fascinated him and he wanted to get to know some of the country's more obscure inhabitants.

    With a handful of staff, including his brother, Charles, he flew in various aircraft covering almost 10, 000 miles in just over a week, camping out on Ellesmere Island, worshiping at Fort Chino's church, ice-fishing at the Pole, and dancing with Inuit go-go girls at Frobisher Bay.

    I guess the purpose of this trip was to show his new subjects that their monarch was intimate with both nature and Canada's Northern frontier. In a brief statement upon his return, Mr Trudeau claimed that he found that "It appeared to me that the Eskimos (sic)were less miserable than when I was last up there in a canoe, about ten years ago" He went on to conclude that "The North is far from an economic takeoff"

    As usual, the new charismatic Prime Minister's travels and various antics, and photo-opportunities have filled our newspapers -its a wonder the publicity - seeking politician didn't take a television team along for the ride - but now that he's come back to earth, we will get some idea of what the reign of "King P.E.T." will mean to these humble subjects of Canada
