TRANSCRIPT: "Well sir, what are the main objects behind this trip of yours to Canada & the United States?"
"For a long time I have been meaning to pay a visit to Canada & the United States, since I took over my appointment as Chief of Air Staff in England about 18 months ago. I was going to come last year & couldn't, so this is the first opportunity I've had. I look forward to discussing with my colleagues the many problems which we've got in common as regards to the operation & maintenance of our forces"
"Do you foresee the day when aircraft will no longer be flown in combat by air forces?"
"No, I do not. I think that undoubtedly unmanned weapons will play an increasingly important part but I personally cannot foresee the day when we won't want manned aircraft with the man & his brain in them to play an important part in military warfare".
