THE Eleventh S.B.A.C. Display, held at Farnborough, September 5 to 10, has marked another year of sustained progress in the British Aircraft Industry. Although the advances since the previous display appeared to be less spectacular than in the preceding years the achievements of the industry, judged by the successful development of both civil and military aircraft which are eminently suited for their tasks, are no less impressive. On the contrary, as the development of an aircraft after its first flight quite often is a more difficult task than the design and construction of the prototype, the impressive display of aircraft types ready to go into service in the near future is an even more convincing proof of the capabilities of the British aircraft industry than any display of spectacular new prototypes could have been.
