[Video] DH Comet Black Magic, Grosvenor Hous, The Green Comet.



William Morris

From the Pathe News Film (Their Rights) of the G-ACSS Christening on 2nd October 1934, I noticed that ALL three Comets are visible, Top Left E1 (Presumed to be G-ACSP "Black Magic"), Bottom Right G-ACSS "Grosvenor House", Centre Top G-ACSR The Green Comet. I have done some repetitions and stills for viewing. The MacRobertson Race started on 20th October 1934, 18 days later so this shows all the work still to be done. Later that day E1 was taken to 230.5mph on trial run. NOTE : NO SOUND.
