THE recent winding‐up of the Owl Repair Organization signalized the end of war‐time conditions in the airframe repair industry. Yet our outlook upon repairs cannot be the same as before the war. What will be the form and scope of repair work in the future? What will be the effect of the experience gained in the past six years? An answer to these questions can only be attempted if we first look back upon the period immediately prior to 1939, when the structures of most aircraft were basically the same as the more orthodox types used during the war.
