World‐wide Operation of Twin Jet Aircraft

Concerned with the increasing use of twin jet aircraft over longer ranges, this paper by Richard W. Taylor of the Boeing Commercial Airplane Company put the present level of operations of these types in historical perspective by considering how the need for additional power was met, first, by providing a greater number of engines (since increased horsepower or thrust was not available). This state of affairs continued for a considerable time and it has only been in the relatively recent past that the ability to produce more and more power from an engine has met performance requirements.
