IN recent years the problems involved in flight on asymmetric power have attracted increasing attention and curiosity. It is safe to state that at the beginning of the British era of high‐powered twin‐engined aircraft, of which the Blenheim I is a representative type, pilots regarded an engine failure at any time as a major problem. A failure of the worst type—on take‐off—was thought to result invariably in loss of control, with the attendant after‐effects on aircraft and crew.
