Photo measures 9 x 6. A U.S. Marine Sky Hawk jet fighter, with missile might slung beneath, takes off from an "instant" airfield at Almeria, Spain, on the second day of joint U.S. - Spanish maneuvers. In a demonstration of Navy's setup portable airfields almost "at will," Navy Seabees and Marines put down the field in four and one-half days. Fighters first used strip yesterday. Today transports and heavy warplanes operated from the 4,000-foot strip.
