Caption: "FRONT VIEW of new Navy flight test facility to be operated by Raytheon Company at Bedford, Mass. shows cables supporting roof which frees hangar areas from column supports. Smaller front doors, shown here, supplement giant side doors which roll beyond the edge of the building on beams shown at upper right and left. With all doors open, planes may be moved in and out without interrupting work on other aircraft. The nearly $2 million structure dedicated today will house some 300 employees working in development and testing of advanced missiles and airborne electronic devices." From Public Relations, Raytheon Comany, Waltham 54, Mass.
