Abstract : The report surveys classical theories of industry location and appraises their applicability in the 1970's, when very large cargo aircraft are expected to be introduced. Modifications of existing theory are considered toward the development of an extended general theory of location. Some preliminary observations are made on the effects of super-cargo aircraft on industry location. The study is one product of a program of private, self-sponsored research. The program has the objective of examining changes in industry location that could result from introduction of super-cargo aircraft such as the planned Boeing 747 subsonic jet transport. (Author)
