DH88 Comet: A racing great

Saturday 24 October 2020


The 1934 DH88 Comet was built to take part in the MacRobertson Air Race, and it won in style. A streamlined, attractive aircraft, it has a fascinating history and is one of the highlights of The Shuttleworth Collection.

There will be a chance to look into the cockpit (steps positioned alongside) for those wanting to take the opportunity to get a closer look.
