Objective was to delineate a sector through which, had the nuclear explosion vented, a contaminated air mass would have been expected to move and through which nonparticipating military or civilian aircraft would be advised not to fly. Had venting occurred, such predesignation of a potentially hazardous air space would have avoided startling pilots flying near the test site, prevented unintentional penetration of a contaminated air mass, and minimized traffic hazards to participating aircraft. The FAA has concluded that the Project Shoal Air Space Advisory Plan provided all proper precautions necessary to ensure against radioactive contamination of airmen or aircraft.
