These deficiencies led to difficulties in meeting the increasing damage tolerance requirements of the mid to late 1960s and, consequently, there were no further applications for 2020 after the last Vigilante and spares were made. 38 Current commercial aluminium–lithium alloys 39 Aluminium–lithium (Al-Li) activities waned for several years until the early 1970s when oil price increases prompted a renewal of interest from aircraft manufacturers and operators. However, this time, the potential for structural weight savings from reduced density was of paramount importance, and coincided with the aluminium producers’ enthusiasm for new product developments to counter the serious inroads being made into their markets by the increasing popularity and use of lightweight organic based composite materials.

Although the current uses of Al-Li Future aluminium–lithium developments 45 alloys are niche applications, Airbus and BA are involved in extensive evaluation programmes to assess the suitability of these materials for future commercial fixed wing aircraft applications. These give rise to optimism that we are on the verge of significant expansion in Al-Li use and that it will become one of the most important aerospace materials of the early twentyfirst century. Building upon the experience gained through use of Al-Li on the EH101, some further topics which appear to be worthy of research and development for exploitation in future aerospace applications are as follows: 1.
