Know them when you see them
THIS was a £10,000 racer, the 230 m.p.h. D.H. Comet that won the Australia air race. next year it will be a twelve-passenger airliner. Its transformation is a perfect example of how racing “improves the breed.”
De Havilland’s new high-speed liner now building will be four-engined. But in all essentials it will be the Comet in newer, bigger guise.
It ought to prove rather exciting. It is an engineering fact that the Comet approached more nearly to the theoretical 100 per cent, efficient flying machine than anything built before.
