HARRISON, N. Y., July 11 (AP)-A B-17 bomber landed at Westchester County Airport today and later took off with about 10 passengers bound for an undisclosed destination.

One airport spokesman said the plane’s pilot, identified only as A. Frederick, refused to file a flight plan.

The New York Herald-Tribune later said its “flying newsroom” plane had followed the B-17 from the field to a point outside the continental limits of the U. S. and far out over the ocean on a course from Cape Ann, Mass.

The paper said “it is believed that the plane is being flown to the Haganah forces in Israel.”
