The paper reviews the effect of advancing technology on the cost of past aircraft and the implications for the future. The validity of historical records for forecasting a future dominated by technological change and the consequences of continued escalation are discussed. It is argued that more priority needs to be given to the reduction of support cost and a way of looking at this as a direct contribution to military capability is suggested. The role of operations research is briefly emphasised and a more deliberately evoutionary approach to the production of aircraft is advocated.
