Great Minds Think Alike

Having learned that the team now working on the restoration to taxiable condition of the DH88 Comet Racer G-ACSR has decided to paint it green, DHAM Times has been made aware that the one and only Airfix has just launched a new plastic aircraft kit.

Guess what? It is of the Comet Racer, and its colour is green! While the red Grosvenor House and black Black Magic are the well-known two survivors of the three built in the 1930s, the third was not given a name but still managed to set up two world records. It was sadly destroyed in a hangar fire, and so both DHAM and Airfix, unknown to each other, are commemorating the “lost” Comet Racer.
