The shift to using aluminium is an interesting trend, but all that prinmary school stuff about the properties of aluminium! Really - I'd have expected better from an enginbeering publication.  In fact, I felt insulted by the author's 'suprising fact' - that, pound for pound, aoluminium is stronger than steel.  Well, I never!
