There is a certain purity and beauty to many interwar air racers. The Shuttleworth Collection's de Havilland DH.88 Comet is one such aircraft - all sleek lines and smooth curves, it has to be regarded as one of the finest looking vintage aircraft ever flown. Three purpose-built Comets entered the 1934 England to Australia MacRobertson Air Race, but only Charles Scott and Tom Campbell Black 's 'Grosvenor House' finished the race, arriving in Melbourne after 71 hours and 18 seconds to become the outright winner. The Comet is pictured here at the 2016 Race Day airshow, covered in our Debrief >> vintageaviationecho.com/shuttleworth-race-day-2016-honours-aviation-pioneers/ ... See MoreSee Less
