Recent Progress in Aeronautical Science

    Article metrics


    TWO lectures delivered recently have directed attention to striking progress in the development of aeronautical science. Simultaneously with these lectures, the “Wilbur Wright” lecture by Dr. R. T. Glazebrook, and the “James Forrest” lecture by Mr. F. W. Lanchester, results are published of experiments on an inherently stable aeroplane, the RE 1, constructed at the Royal Aircraft Factory. The two lectures and the flying machine are not wholly unconnected with each other.
