ALTHOUGH the modern tendency in aeroplane construction is to produce an all‐metal machine, the time has not yet come when we can definitely say that this or that machine is entirely of metal, there being still a fair proportion of the structure of most light aeroplanes in which wood plays a very important part, both from the point of view of the greater facilities existing for repair and the lesser cost of production.
