It has two advantages o\rer previous systems, he believe s. Unde 1 his invention, the plane is guided along an easy curve which at no pla c e is too steep,-and. the wheels t ouch the ground when the plane is fl ying horizontally along the botto m of this curve. The second advantage is that the radio antenna is place d to one side of the runway, where it is completely out of the way. The radiatio n from the antenna is shape d like a funnel.
