The specification for the hangar was for a building of clear width of 491 ft., depth 164 ft., and height 34 ft.; the front 491 ft. to be unrestricted except for one central
column, giving two clear openings of 244 ft. and the rear to have columns at 29 ft. centres giving access at ground level to adjacent buildings, with glazing above; the two side walls to be framed with columns and filled with brickwork and glazing. A cantilever canopy was required at the front to enable the high tail fin of a Stratocruiser to be accommodated.

THE title of my address is “Sixty Years of Hydro-Electric Development in Great Britain.” One of the outstanding changes in the post-war era has been the growth of hydro-electric development in all parts of the world. The interruption to shipping during the second World War was a direct incentive to most countries to make themselves, as far as possible, independent of overseas deliveries of coal or fuel oil;
thus attention was turned to utilizing their natural water power resources. While spectacular developments have taken place in Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, practically all the European countries, Asia and Africa, the growth of
hydro-electric power in the United Kingdom must not be overlooked or minimised. As a result of the efforts made by the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board since its inception in 1943, well over 500,000 kW of hydro-electric plant have been installed up to date, with a further 300,000 kW at present under construction. Details of this achievement will be referred to later.
