FOURTEEN months ago we published an article very strongly criticizing the electrical equipment in British aeroplanes, which resulted in correspondence of a somewhat acrimonious character. Actually, the criticisms were at that time probably not unfair to the type of equipment which was being installed in bombers then in production, but steps had already been taken to remedy the position, which had become generally realized, and the specifications for the S.B.A.C. standard system of electrical wiring had been drawn up and were on the point of being introduced. As soon as we became aware of this we set in motion negotiations with a view to the appearance of a full description of the new system in the pages of Aircraft Engineering. For one reason and another it has taken a year for these plans to mature and it was not until last month that we were in a position to publish the first of the two articles specially written by Mr. F. Elmsley which are concluded this month.
