: FLYING TIME

' When an aeroplane is tested '
Major Oliver Stewart , M.C.
This is the first of a series of four talks on the practical work that goes to the making and perfecting of an aeroplane. Major Oliver Stewart , a pilot of long experience who was engaged for some time on experimental and test flying for the government and who is a writer on aeronautical subjects, will deal with the tests through which a new aeroplane goes before it is accepted for general use. He will discuss the remarkable inventions which have helped to improve aircraft performance and safety ; aerobatics and their uses in discovering the handling qualities of different machines in the air, and some of the strange aeroplanes that have been produced with special objects in view.
Calculations of aircraft performance tend to become more and more trustworthy, but it is only when it reaches the hands of the test pilot that the true qualities of a new machine become known, and it is with this side of 'plane testing that Major Oliver Stewart will deal this afternoon.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
