Being asked to keep the subject elementary so that it could be grasped by men other than technicians, Wing-Commander Scott gave a very clear account of the functions of the wings of an aeroplane without any ab struse excursions into Advanced Mathe matics. He, opened the lecture by pointing out that the possibility of flight had occu pied the minds of men since ancient times when, according to a myth, two men attached wings to their bodies by means of wax and imitated the flight of' birds.

Later experiments were again based on the imitation of the flight of birds, where the lift necessary for flight is gained by flapping the wings and so creating a greater pressure of air below than above. The first to r...
