LAST month's article dealt with the problems and work associated with the preparation of Royal Air Force Maintenance Schedules, while this continuation of it is in the nature of a corollary. There are many ways in which aeroplane design could be better from the servicing viewpoint and the aim here is to indicate some of the lines of thought that can lead to an improvement. I have not attempted anything in the nature of an exhaustive survey, since that requires months of study; but, using a number of AMSDU Servicing Appraisals as a basis, I have tried to give a general picture of some good and bad features in modern aeroplanes.
