An enormous increase in air cargo in the near future has been predicted by various authorities and many surveys have been made to analyze the markets which should develop. But, so far as the authors are aware, little has been said about the actual engineering and mechanical problems involved in the handling of air cargo. It is true that several cargo aero‐plane designs have been evolved and proposed which include many novel construction features, but little has been available to designers in the way of specific operation and cargo handling recommendations.
