THE last decade has seen great progress in the development of the electronic flash tube and there are today few scientific or engineering projects which do not employ the tube as a high‐speed photographic light source to secure data which cannot otherwise be obtained. Aeronautical research is no exception; the technique of flash photography was accelerated during the war years, both in this country and America, primarily to meet the many and varied problems which arise in aircraft engineering.
