UNUSUAL GLIDERS
(Continued from Page 22)
combination a five-motored airplane with two fuselages.
Due to the launching problem and to its extreme vulnerability to enemy action while aloft, the Me-321 was converted to a powered airplane, the Me-323. The airframe was identical except where necessary to accommodate six French Gnome-Rhone 14N radial engines of 990 HP. These were located on the leading edge of the center section in a conventional manner, and gave the Me-323 a high speed of 136 MPH at a takeoff weight of 43,000 kilograms or 96,000 pounds. It is interesting to note that this practice of converting standard military gliders to powered aircraft was followed by the Germans with other models, and also by the British and Americans.

ture is bright. They will be used again this spring for high altitude wave study in the Sierra Nevadas. Pressurized cabins or even pilotless sailplanes under radio control are being considered. For future convection, turbulence, and cloud physics studies, gliders using new and improved instruments are planned. 
Lieutenant Obarr discussed gliding's future role in the field of aircraft education and training. He stressed the increasing need of aviation personnel and the urgency of interesting young people in aviation if the needs of the industry and operations are to be filled. He felt that the glider was one key to the solution of the problem, both through building projects in the schools, and through properly supervised and regulated flight training programs. 
In the discussion period Major J. Wilcox, USMC of the Office of Naval Research, spoke of the boundary layer and other such research work using gliders, being sponsored by ONR. He also mentioned briefly a plan under consideration whereby the aviation industry would insist in sponsoring glider training programs. 
The session was honored by the presence of Mr. Grover C. Loening. Mr. Loening in commenting on the subjects, stressed also the assistance which gliding could render particularly in the fields of aerodynamics and education.
