The Structural Engineering Aspects of the Development of Gatwick Airport Discussion on the Paper by Frederick S. Snow, C.B.E., M.I.Struct.E., M.I.C.E., M.I.Mech.E., ( Past President) and E. V. Finn, A.M.I.Struct.E.

Mr. SNOW in his brief introduction of the paper referred to the sudden death of Sir Alfred LeMaitre who deserved the credit for the inspiration of Gatwick and who guided the project through the initial teething trouble; to the support given by the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation, Mr. Harold Watkinson and to the excellent team spirit which was built up and made the job such a happy one. Mr. FINN then described and illustrated some of the works involved at Gatwick.
