Abstract

THE first public flight of the Short Sherpa was made at Aldergrovc R.A.F. station near Belfast early in December. The Sherpa has been designed and built as part of the research programme of Short Brothers and Harland Ltd., without, at this stage, Ministry of Supply contract. The design philosophy leading to the Sherpa was outlined by the company's chief designer, Mr David Keith‐Lucas, on the occasion of the demonstration.
