Abstract

THE purpose of this article is to indicate the developments in aircraft that have appeared since the first post‐war S.B.A.C. Display of 1946. Now is perhaps the time to pause and consider progress in British aviation, particularly as the first turbo‐jet air liner, the Comet, has entered service, the first turbo‐propeller aircraft, the Viscount 700, is being manufactured in quantity, and production orders have been placed for the Hawker Hunter swept‐wing fighter and the Gloster G.A.5 Delta. These aircraft represent a few of the British types evolved in the post‐war period and demonstrate aeronautical advancement.
