I regret that there is an error on this otherwise excellent and enjoyable website.
The 'Facts and Figures' has 3 comments. I cannot comment on the 3rd but the first two do not refer to this aircraft but the post-WWII Comet jet passenger aircraft that had such tragic crashes following metal fatigue failures as described in the comments.

I remember this event as a 4year old living in Mildenhall.I have a back and white photo of it I took before in left Southend where it was parked in the years before Shuttleworth took it over to restore.

I own a controlling share in an authentic Comet replica that is being constructed in New Zealand. This share is for sale. The aeroplane is 2/3 complete, with all remaining parts available. Interested parties please email me.

Does anyone know what happened to the replica DH 88 being built by George Lemay during the 1990's in Alberta Canada?
When I last saw it construction was well advanced and George had a couple of men helping him with the project.
At that time George also had a Beech D17, DH Dove, and a DH Rapide along with various other light aircraft in his hangars.

I am trying to get a photograph of the Comet's instrument panel so that I can make a reasonably accurate replica for the 1/6th scale model I am currently building.

Can anyone help with this?

I have researched one of the co-winners of the 1934 Melbourne Centenary Air Race Tom Campbell Black, he with C.W.A. Scott won the race in "Grosvenor House" G-ACSS. I found it to be an amazing era. I set up a web site to commemorate the men and machines. I am sure you will enjoy a visit. www.tomcampbellblack.150m.com

I am born of the last half 20th century. This airplane has been retired for a feww decades, but through general knowledge. Question was this aircraft an air speed holder in aircraft records?


EMBER, e-mail, 22.12.2007 23:49

MY FATHER FOUND ONE OF THESE IN 1951, AND BOUGHT IT FOR 50,000 DOLLORS (PAID IT OFF OVER THE YEARS). TO THIS DAY IT STILL IS AIRWORTHY, BUT HAS A TENDENCY TO ROLL A BIT TOO MUCH. IT'S LOGGED 153hrs 45min.

Please disregard the the communication of the 18th Feb.
Thank you. Charles ward.

I have a print in my possession of Grovesnor House from an original oil commisioned in 1984 to commemorate the race.The artist is Norman W Clark and it gives a time of 77hrs 23min. This Time was also mentioned during a recent programme on the Mosquito screened by the History Channel. I would welcome the opportunity to talk with you and investigate the matter. Yours sincerely Charles Ward
