WE publish in this issue a moving appeal from one who is an electrical expert, with wide pre‐war experience in general civilian installations, for a remodelling of the electrical system in large multi‐engined aeroplanes. He complains that those responsible for the design of these arrangements follow a tradition limited to aircraft, and evolved de novo for this purpose, whereas great improvements could be effected by calling on the accumulated experience of electricians who have for years been engaged on similar work for wider purposes. He has in fact—let us be frank about it—developed a whole‐hearted contempt for the type of electrical installation from which, he maintains, aeroplanes suffer rather than benefit, and he claims that if the experienced electrical engineer were called in, or listened to, something altogether superior would become the practice.
