THE twentieth Salon International de l'Aéronautique was held from June 26 to July 5, the stands being housed in a new permanent building at the south‐eastern extremity of the airport of le Bourget with the outside static aircraft part and runways nearby. Apart from being much more convenient for exhibitors and public, the new arrangement seems to coincide with a resurgence of confidence in the French aircraft industry. A number of interesting new prototypes were shown, and there are now more aircraft for which production orders have been placed, although usually only in moderate quantities.
