Abstract

THE interest in anticipation offered by an International Aeronautical Exhibition is akin to that inspired by friendly participation in the reunion of a large and normally‐scattered family for some special celebration. One will look to see whether the elder stalwarts continue in full vigour; has that adolescent promise developed into maturity, or was it merely an evanescent brilliance; is new blood coming in, to bo assimilated in the traditions of the breed; or is the general stock slipping back, pot‐bound and sterile of fresh enterprise and foresight? In one's judgment one must be careful, however, to remember that it is a festal occasion, not the routine of life.
