THE last of the annual Farnborough Air Shows (see p. 302) went out in a blaze of glory—fulfilling right royally its early promise of being an occasion for the connoisseur. Seven aircraft, varying from the tiny Beagle Wallis WA 116 one‐man autogyro to the mighty Vickers VC10 long‐range airliner, made their first appearance at the Show; the Indoor Exhibition was larger than ever before and showed to advantage the technical ingenuity and scope of the British industry; and the flying display was the finest which we are likely to see for many years. Only the Missile Park—with noticeably fewer exhibits than previous years—cast a shadow of pessimism upon the Show.
