AS anticipated, the 1962 Society of British Aircraft Constructors' Flying Display and Exhibition at Farnborough was the biggest and most interesting for many years. In all, seven new aircraft showed their paces at the Show for the first time; ranging from the spritely antics of the Beagle Wallis autogyro to the majestic pro‐gress of the giant VCIO. Of the other new air‐craft; the Beagle M.218, the de Havilland Trident (actually three of them flew over), the Bristol T. 188, the de Havilland DH 125 and the two Hawker P.1127's; it was the P.l127 vertical take‐off fighter which provided the highlight of the Show. The versatility of its performance was little short of astonishing and it is possible to foresee a revolution in aircraft design stemming from the wide‐spread adoption of vectored thrust and/or separate lifting engines.
