"We are not yet satisfied that the d Halland should follow the Bristol o Its way to the scrap heap." said a mem ber of the committee, "but the machine as It Is now being produced Is far from a success and may Indeed, prove a complete failure." The Bristol machine, which waR tha only other machine that played a major part In the American aircraft, was aban doned about ten days ago after a nura- oer or pilots had been killed while ex perimenting with the machine. The place of the Bristol in- the air craft program was. taken by the S. B., Five, a single-seat combat machine, which will not come Into production In larg.e numbers for- several months.
