Author: Arthur C. Clarke
Date: 1949-09-23

Language: English
Note: First published in The Aeroplane, September 23, 1949, pp. 441-2. Facsimile is reprinted in Ascent to Orbit (1984).

Synopsis: An account of Clarke's wartime experience when he worked in Cornwall with ''a bunch of wild young scientists and engineers'' on the so called GCA (Ground Controlled Approach), a radar system designed to ''talk aircraft down, rather than shoot them down.''
