IT may be remembered that at this time last year, on the occasion of the last S.B.A.C. Display, we published an article by MR A. F. NEWELL, which brought together the history of aircraft design and development since the war. This seemed appropriate because the efforts of these years could then be seen to be culminating in the outstanding aircraft to be seen at the display. Such a survey also serves, we believe, a useful function in enabling one to stand back and see the lines of development which must be obscure to many in the industry at the time because they are too near to certain aspects of current work. Those coming into the industry for the first time may also find it useful to have some means of discovering the stages that led up to current developments.
